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

Cool, crisp, refreshing but apart from a slightly clean initial taste, I don't see it being that spectacular and pretty much run of the mill Chardonnay. Its ok but fairly standard.

Crisp, zesty white with citrus and apples flavours. Smoky backdrop of oak flavours, perhaps overwhelming the freshness of the wine.

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.

Tangy, with orange blossom and intense, bright lemony flavors, showing touches of mineral and herb on the tart finish. Drink now.

Lightly oaked to add hints of vanilla, buttered toast and caramel, but with no malolactic fermentation, so the wine maintains its brilliant acidity. Nicely balanced, with bright tropical fruit flavors. Good with grilled chicken or pasta. Food pairing: Asian, pasta, poultry, seafood, spicy foods Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp

An easy-drinking Chardonnay from New Zealand. Clean and fruit driven on the palate with yellow apple fruit aromas.

Winemaker's Notes:

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay truly captures the character of Marlborough with pure, incisive, ripe fruit flavours. A combination of barrel and tank fermentation and the stirring of yeast lees achieves maximum softness, integration and texture. To retain all the natural assertiveness and flavour, no malolactic fermentation takes place. Clonal influences in the vineyard have been very important, providing smaller berries and enhanced flavour intensity.
