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.
External Reviews for Oyster Bay Merlot Marlborough
Black spice-laden plum, wisps of wood smoke and espresso roast aromas that segue to an ultra-smooth and mellow mouthful of dark, juicy berry fruit, plum notes and almost sweet, ripe black cherries. It is medium bodied with creamy texture and a balanced fruit-forward aftertaste.
