Decibel Hawke’s Bay Malbec 2021 $32

This is one seriously fleshy, spice-stacked, cocoa and blueberry, softly peppery, plush malbec and I’m here for it. The mouthfeel is warm, woolly, round and roaring with textural tannins that boast prickle in all the right places. Juicy and velvety and energising to sip. This malbec is a rich, rumpty crowd pleaser.
