Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011
Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is a *fine example of elegant cool climate pinot noir*. Aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length. Fragrant, soft and redolant of ripe, red fruits and for as good as this pinot noir is, it's a bargain to boot.
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.
seems like it's ever-young wine... It's not of course but light red color, much acidity and bright fruity taste make it younger than it is. Very nice easy to drink wine but overpriced.
Simply a beautiful drink-anytime-go-with-anything wine. Light, but rich. So smooth it's seductive. Beautiful finish. Bet you can't drink just one glass ;)

External Reviews for Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir
The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. With every vintage we are working with more established vines from small vineyard sites, each chosen for its aspect and uniform soils of moderate fertility, providing for extended ripening and enhanced fruit flavour profiles. With pinot noir the fruit is always the primary focus. Each vineyard block is harvested as a separate parcel and treated individually at each stage of the winemaking process. This enables us to influence and enhance the wine using traditional winemaking techniques, adding subtlety and complexity. We use a combination of barrel and tank fermentation and mature the wine in a mix of new and older French oak. Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant cool climate pinot noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavourful with aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length. - WineryAromatic cherry...
