Origin New Zealand, Hawkes Bay
Brand Decibel
Rich and intense passionfruit with hints of elderflower and gooseberry, citrus and honeysuckle. Some autolysis characteristics remain with richness on the back-nose giving more headier notes. The front palate is lively with crisp peach notes, a soft mid-palate of honey dew and fresh stone fruit racing towards the finish with a lingering, chalky textural note on the cheeks giving a zesty finish.

Hawke's Bay is much warmer than Marlborough, offering a riper, softer expression of Sauvignon Blanc, as the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Decibel demonstrates. Sitting inland on the Crownthorpe Terraces, a little elevation provides cooler growing conditions than the plains where Cabernet and Syrah grow. This is a zesty little number with grassy, elderflower and gooseberry notes. The midpalate is gentle, offering more weight than you'd expect from cooler climes, but it remains fresh and mouthwatering on the flinty albeit fleeting finish.
