Decibel 2019 Chenin Blanc

Two Terraces Vineyard, Hakwes Bay, New Zealand
100% Chenin Blanc

Decibel’s 2019 Giunta Chenin Blanc comes from the Two Terraces Vineyard in the Maraekakaho Appellation of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. The lower nighttime temperatures of this inland site produces wines in a cooler climate style with fragrant aromatics and elegant structure. The 2019 Giunta Chenin Blanc offers aromas of red apple seeds and light floral notes with hints of cinnamon glazed pears. On the palate, this wine has a soft approach with a rich, even spicy mid-palate. While the fruit it opulent and soft in portions, it also has firm acidity with a lengthy crisp finish. Cheers!
