Decibel 2018 Gimblett Gravels Malbec (Hawke's Bay)

This is in an odd place at the moment, but if the 2017 is anything to by, it will hopefully find its way with another year in the bottle. There's a burnt rubber note on the nose, but there's also plenty of more appealing aromas like fresh mint, red and black berries, earthy spices and a dusty oak character. The palate is equally austere. Tannins are big and chewy, lacking a generosity of fruit to temper them. Give this at least a year to unravel. Drink 2022–2028. Christina Pickard
