Decibel Organic Pétillant Naturel Malbec Rosé 2023
92 POINTS: Cameron Douglas MS
"Pink hues with a cloudy pink/white appearance lead to a bouquet of pacific rose apple skin and flesh, a light white-rose scent and chalky lees suggestions. Crisp, fruity, refreshing and dry on the palate. Fruits flavours of red apple and a strawberry-cherry mix fill the palate with flavours. Plenty of acidity and moderate length, balanced and well made in a ready to drink expression. Best from 2023 through end of summer 2026."

"Malbec grown in Hawke’s Bay’s Bridge Pa region has been crafted in an ancient method of bottling partially-fermented wine and allowing the yeast to finish their job in the bottle – so it keeps on creating fizz. The spent yeast, or “lees”, remain in the bottle so the wine has a natural haze to it. Softly fizzy and despite its bright, candy-pink appearance, it’s dry and lean with a red apple intensity, bright pepper and cherry complexity on the finish making this a sunny day sipping-sensation. Just a word to the wise. Pet Nat wines need to be opened over a sink and be prepared for ‘lots’ of spillage."
