DECIBEL, 2020 Viognier, Hawkes Bay
Fresh wafer on the nose with hints of white flower and anise. After opening up brighter floral notes and orange blossom dominate the nose. The palate is crisp with a spicy oiliness driving the midpalate. The finish has a chalky minerality that makes for lingering flavors for excellent food pairings. There are hints of cinnamon toast, brioche, and lemon meringue pie.
