Decibel Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Feb-2022
Bright, pale straw-yellow, slightly lighter edge. The wine has a vibrant bouquet, greeted with nettle, gooseberries and pineapple, followed by spice lifting and a hint of citrus floral. Medium-light bodied, lush aromas of stonefruit, pineapple underlying a hint of green herb. Pineapple aroma lingers on the palate with a hint of sweetness left a rounding mouthfeel with subtle spices. This lush, fine-textured Sauvignon Blanc possesses generous tropical fruit and a touch of spice. Match with salt & pepper calamari and five-spice pork chop over the next 3 years. Fruit from the elevated terraces of the Crownthorpe sub-region, destemmed, crushed, fermented in stainless steel to 13% alc, frequent lees stirring. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Feb 2022 RRP $19
