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.

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.
