2014 Decibel Amplified Red (Malbec)
The Amplified red is an opulent blend of 85% Malbec and 15% Merlot grown in the Gimblett Gravels: rich, complex and meaty made by Philly born but Hawkes Bay trained winemaker Daniel Brennan. This is a stunning example of HB Malbec at its best.
"A blend of malbec 85% and merlot 15%. Big, rich red that is clearly malbec dominant with its rich, almost chewy texture and dark plum, berry, spice and chocolate/mocha characters. Impressive now but with the potential to develop well." 95/100 Bob Campbell MW
