Grown on the Martinborough Terrace by Viticulturist Chris Reid, this wine was hand picked, hand sorted and fermented with indigenous yeast, then aged in French oak for ten months, before being hand bottled and sealed with cork. Dark cherry and mushroom aromas reflect the savory Martinborough style of Pinot Noir, and are complimented by dry herb, vanilla and nutty oak on the palate. Enjoy this wine for years and years to come.
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.
