Decibel Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 24-Jul-2020
Bright, even, straw-yellow colour. The nose is elegantly presented with fragrances of elderflower, stonefruit, lemon and lime, entwined with light honey and delicate green herbs. Medium-bodied, an amalgam of citrus fruit, lemon, lime and mandarin with its pith; melded with stonefruit, light honey, florals and subtle spices. The palate is with weight; waxy and light honeyed mouthfeel, enlivened by zesty fruit. The fruit is fresh, zesty with energy and balanced acidity, hauling subtle spices and savoury element to a linear finish. This is a medium-weight Sauvignon Blanc with good core of citrus fruit and zest, honeyed and savoury element. Match with pork loin and grilled fish over the next 3-4 years. De-stemmed, fermented in stainless steel to 12% alc, 6 g/l RS. 17/20 pts July 2020 RRP $19
