Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2006
Very nice nose..typical NZ Sauvignon Blanc with hints on gooseberry and grass. Nice mouthfeel with pear, green apple and gooseberry. A very nice sipper on its own. 88Add winemaker's notes
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.

Great value for a crisp S.B.
Great nose. Very light with very slight acidity. Great summer time wine!
On a warm summer evening sitting outside with friends, this wine refreshes the spirit and sparkles conversation.
