Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Pale straw green in colour with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively, penetrating fruit characters. A concentration of tropical and gooseberry flavours with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing.
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.
A bit fruitier than the 13 vintage, still has nice acidity with a pineapple finish.
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.
External Reviews for Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. 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
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.
New Zealandrsquo;s Sauvignon Blanc is often suggested as an alternative to Chardonnay. Its incredibly bright flavor, snappy acidity and fresh, easy feel are a perfect contrast to the rich, buttery full-bodied style of Chardonnay that is most popular. The citrus, pineapple and kiwi fruit tones most common in New Zealandrsquo;s Sauvignon Blanc are paired with intensely green aromatics that recall gooseberries, freshly cut grass, and jalapentilde;os, offering an unusual and unusually compelling blend of savory and sweet that has found a huge following.
Why is Oyster Bay so popular? Well, the price is great, that always helps. Then therersquo;s the light body and bright acidity, which is always refreshing on a hot day, and helps it to pair well with many light dishes. The flavors are great: delicious, fresh citrus and tropical fruit notes, highlighted with fresh dill and chive. But really, the main reason we sell so much Oyster Bay is that each of these elements are present year after year, making this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc a consistent winner and always a safe choice!
Good pale color. Aromas of grapefruit pith, oregano and curry powder, plus a slightly sweaty sauvignon note. Juicy but not hard, with fresh acidity framing the rather delicate soft citrus flavors. Needs to be served with food.
Citrus, herb and grass notes are balanced around a core of vibrant acidity. Finishes with the slightest touch of coarseness. Drink now.
