Oyster Bay Chardonnay Marlborough 2011

Member Review by Zuiko:

An enjoyable NZ Chardonnay characterized by apple and slight honey on the nose. Needs a bit more acid to balance it. Average amount of fruit seen. This wine needs more extract to match their 2008 wine. My rating -- 88

Oyster Bay Wines:
Internationally-recognised for producing "elegant, assertive wines with glorious fruit flavours", Oyster Bay is also a winemaker with great viticultural vision. It was Oyster Bay that had the foresight, over two decades ago, to recognise the enormous wine-growing potential that lay beneath the stony, alluvial soils of a marginal sheep farming district in New Zealand's Hawkes Bay. Today that region is producing New Zealand's finest merlots.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

The nose is filled with attractive toasty oak aromas mixes with a touch of butter. Medium bodied and fruit forward with a creamy texture; the palate shows tangy fruit and just the right amount of acidity that balances well with the oak.
