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.

Clear pale straw, bright aromas of gooseberries, cut grass and minerals, lively on the palate with notes of green tree fruits, green apples and lime, focused and lingering, refreshing acidity and lively...a definitive Kiwi SB that's a great value.

Even as Oyster Bay approaches room temperature in your glass, it keeps its cool. It's a bit minerally, has a lot of fresh citrus flavor, and is nicely crisp, dry and refreshing, while still providing some nice fruit overtones. I would call it a crowd-pleaser, because it gives you just a tiny bit of “fireworks on your tongue,” and I can’t imagine . . . http://wineguider.wordpress.com/2010/07/21/oyster-bay-sauvignon-blanc/

That was a very nice surprise! Nose is amazingly aromatic, parfumy and fruity. Pale straw with touch of green color. On the palate fresh, crisp acidity, citrus, passion fruit and a little fizz.

This is a fantastic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, especially for the price! Light-to-medium bodied, with crisp, mouthwatering acidity. Very typical of S. blanc from this region; strong citrus flavors, especially grapefruit. This wine is all about the grape. Wonderful on a hot day, and a good alternative to more expensive labels from the region.

Winemaker Notes - Fragrant tropical and floral notes with vibrant fresh lime and citrus zest, a fine texture and an intense crisp finish.

Crisp and flinty with pear and citrus fruit flavors. Nicely balanced with a long, lemony aftertaste.

A lean and herbal style, offering plenty of fresh green notes that balance out the lemon, grapefruit and floral tones, with nervy acidity. Finishes on a pithy note. Drink now. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Tart and tangy, with very good intensity to grass, grapefruit and green apple flavors. Drink now.

Oyster Bay has become huge because of this winersquo;s global success, and the 2009 demonstrates the brandrsquo;s straightforward appeal. Crisp, racy flavors of lime and grapefruit dominate this medium-bodied white, which can do double duty as an apeacute;ritif or first-course accompaniment.

This successful brand is a huge seller in Australia, and the company reports that 200,000 cases of this vintage are available in the U.S.. Itrsquo;s a little less overt than many Marlborough Sauvignons, with restrained celery leaf and citrus aromas and flavors that finish with just a hint of sweetness.

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fi ne, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit fl avours. It all starts in the vineyard. We treat each vineyard block and parcel of wine individually. The fruit is crushed, gently pressed and the juice is cold settled. A long, slow temperature controlled fermentation and immediate bottling after winemaking, retains all the wonderful fruit flavours and aromas that are present. Pale straw green in colour with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively fruit characters. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
