2021 Decibel Testify Chardonnay, Hawkes Bay
Testify’ is a wine that is only produced in the best of vintages.
In Appearance: Pale straw hue.
On the Nose: a harmony of white nectarine and the oak-influenced aromas of miso caramel and charred pineapple
On the Palate: The palate is ripe and rich with a brilliantly resolved acidity that sparkles like the crunch of a flaky salt crystal. The fruit is ever-present with layers of nectarine, pineapple, stewed Granny Smith apples, and the smoky oak wafting through. A chardonnay for the ages.
Made from grapes grown in the coastal subregion of Te Awanga. Rich, weighty chardonnay with a curious gunpowder pepperiness adding an extra dimension to grapefruit, citrus, green apple, oyster-shell and spicy oak flavours.New Zealand International Wine Show
