Juicy, fresh and delicious.
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.
External Reviews for Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Pungent scents of crushed tomato or nettle leaves enliven this lightweight wine. Itandrsquo;s citrusy and pleasantly leafy on the palate, with a finish that turns slightly chalky.
Citrus, herb and grass notes are balanced around a core of vibrant acidity. Finishes with the slightest touch of coarseness. Drink now.
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.
Winemaker Notes - Fragrant tropical and floral notes with vibrant fresh lime and citrus zest, a fine texture and an intense crisp finish.
Tart and tangy, with very good intensity to grass, grapefruit and green apple flavors. Drink now.
Crisp and flinty with pear and citrus fruit flavors. Nicely balanced with a long, lemony aftertaste.
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.. It'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.
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.
