Decibel Wines 2017 Sauvignon, and 2016 Rosé, Pinot Noir, Malbec and ‘Testify’


Decibel Wines is the venture of Daniel Brennan, based in Bridge Pa, making wines predominantly from Hawke’s Bay fruit and from Martinborough. His vision is to create wines "using classical practices, minimal intervention…with a community based attitude.” Daniel is associated with many winemaker friends and innovators in Hawke’s Bay, and cites influences from Martinborough and the United States where he originally harks from. His forebears were involved with wine, and his background in music are influences in his winemaking. He began making Hawke’s Bay wines under his ‘Decibel’ label in 2009, and Martinborough bottlings followed in 2010, and he has since developed a following. Here, I review his 2017 Sauvignon Blanc, 2016 Rosé. Martinborough Pinot Noir, Malbec and new ‘Testify’ red. www.decibelwines.com
