2022 Decibel Giunta Malbec, Hawkes Bay
Daniel pioneered the Nouveau style in Hawke’s Bay with this juicy, fresh example that leaves your mouth watering for more.
In appearance: For this lighter style, the Malbec color is quite a dark purple.
On the nose: The nose is grainy, brambly with hints of violets and tamarillo growing into notes of blackberry and blueberry pie. Some hints of all spice and confection notes also persist.
On the palate: Dark preserved-cherry, menthol and liquorice flavours. Bit of a buzz of energy in the mouth. Very refreshing finish. Light but persistent tannins.
