Winemaker Notes

Light hint of florals, petrichor, and wet stone on first breath followed by a wave of blueberry, blackberry, violets and brambly dark heady notes. The palate has a rich attack of plum and dense tannin. The midpalate is chalky with dusty tannins and finishes with fresh, lingering acidity, leaving edgy and drying tannins on the palate, reflective of the famous Gimblett Gravels soil.

Wine Enthusiast

 This is a medium- to full-bodied Malbec that embodies the power and freshness of Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay. Cranberry and cherry tart aromas mingle with vanillin oak and bundles of earthy spices like cumin, bay, cloves and mint. It’s less harmonious on the palate, with elevated acidity amid chalky, powerful-yet-fine tannin's and crunchy red and black berry flavors throughout. Drink now with a roast lamb or grilled mushrooms, or cellar until 2027.

Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: The Gimblett Gravels region of New Zealand has been gaining traction amongst wine lovers, and rightly so. The 2017 Decibel Malbec is a delicious wine riving some of the best from Mendoza. TASTING NOTES: This is a firm wine with healthy tannins. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, dusty earth, and blackberries should pair well with grilled short ribs. (Tasted: July 3, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Decibel Wines Winery Video

Decibel, Testify, and Giunta Wines are winemaker's, Daniel Brennan, vision to create wines using classic practices, minimal intervention, and wines with a community based attitude. These are ideas as old as wine itself and he believe strongly in them. However he look to the future as well. He has now had the privilege to work with some of these growers for years and can support their efforts to convert to organics. And as the lineup grows it is with great care to continue to find organic producers to work with. He looks at a time

when we use smart practices in the vineyard and the winery that not only inspire but preserve our great planet.

Decibel Wines came from Daniel's love of music and need to make Martinborough Pinot Noir. Daniel had tasted Martinborough Pinot Noir back at his family restaurant in Philly and it inspired him to travel penniless to New Zealand. While he was studying winemaking he discovered how great Hawke's Bay Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc was and Decibel was thus born, Decibel Wines are a mix of classic and unsung varieties from Hawke's Bay and Martinborough.
