Decibel Viognier 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Viognier from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Feb-2022
Bright, even, straw-yellow with depth. The nose is voluminous, ripe aromas of melon, pear entwined with pear blossom and a lifting note of spice. Full-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of melon, ripe pear intermixed a hint of grapefruit, unfolding spice and rich floral on the finish. The ripe fruit has balanced acidity to carry the flavours, adorned by cardamon and ginger. Smooth-flowing mouthfeel lends a dry, lengthy finish. This is a smooth and spicy Viognier with ripe melon, pear flavour and balanced, fresh acidity. Match with veal and sweetbread over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Bridge Pa, free run and light pressings went into a stainless steel tank while the hard pressings were fermented separately in puncheons, 13% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $26
