2017 Decibel Pinot Noir, Martinborough
This single vineyard wine was produced from a dry-farmed block with a unique soil structure for Martinborough with clay over top of free draining old riverbeds.
In the Appearance: Even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged.
On the Nose: Baked Cherry Pie and toasted nuts oscillate the nose with hints of earthy mushrooms and grainy raspberry that will develop as the wine ages.
Rosemary, sweet tobacco, bing cherry, wet leaves, red currant, and hints of violets and bay leaves all contribute to the complex and alluring nose of this wine.
On the Palate: Vibrant and crunchy in its youth with slightly edgy minerality. The wine has a medium body with a bit of white pepper, spice and dusty tannins on the finish.
