Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2011
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.
Nice with salmon in a lemon caper sauce
Straw bright, lovely aromas of grapefruit, gooseberries and cut wet grass; lively fruit notes of grapefruit, stone fruit and oily citrus, broadly dancing across the palate to a reasonably long and refreshing finish. A Consistently Fine Value.
Nice fruity bouquet. Crisp dry and very nice
Great wine! This is perfect for a nice light seafood pasta dinner and finish up with some glasses afterwards. Its crisp, light, but a wonderful fruity flavor that strikes you as soon as you take a drink.
External Reviews for Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc
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.
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 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

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.
