Appetizers and tapas:
Grilled vegetables will not onlycompliment the fruit flavours but the underlying acidity of the wine in the palate will allow for a lovely contrast if prepared with a nice olive oil or truffle oil. Also consider seafood and shellfish tapas paired with pork.
White fish with summer seasoning
Poultry with rich oils and herbs
Pork loin with cooked sliced apples
The wine history of Decibel's Daniel Brennan starts in his family with a Sicilian grandfather who was a winemaker and cooper. His family's involvement in the restaurant business in Philadelphia and their overall zeal for the 'Old World' inspired Daniel to live, work and travel throughout Europe extensively.
Somewhere in his travels he followed his first passion, music, where he toured North America for 6 years while working with independent artists. Eventually Daniel ended up in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand where he studied Wine Science and Viticulture and took on the challenge of bringing the great wines of New Zealand to the rest of the world.
In 2009 Daniel started his own label, Decibel , as a shout back to those days touring with independent artists. Today, when Daniel isn't in Hawkes Bay making wine, he's touring around the globe making noise, raising the dB level.
