Decibel Viognier 2019, Hawke’s Bay 

Viognier from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 24-Jul-2020
Bright, light yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is intense and full with flavours of stonefruit, lemon and reminiscent of lilies, along with a subtle note of spices. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, the palate is rounded with flavours of ripened white peaches and nectarines, an amalgam of spices and underlying fragrance of lilies. The mouthfeel is lush and oily with a good concentration of ripened stonefruit, balanced by the right amount of acidity. The pretty scent of lilies and acidity shows the classic character of Viognier. The delicate spices on the finish added interest and uplifted the finish. This is a generous Viognier with ripened flavours of stonefruit, lilies and spices on an oily and full mouthfeel. Match with spicy Thai food over the next 3-5 years. Free-run juice and hard pressing fermented separately in tanks to 13% alc. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts July 2020 RRP $26
