Oyster Bay Sb 2007

Member Review by redatom:

Versatile in pairings, but really shines with hearty pork and vegetable dishes. With $10 wines like this, there's little reason to spend more than $25 on anything but champagne in the current market.

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.

Pale yellow in colour, to the nose it brings delicate, aromatic scents of flowers. To the palate it is crisp, with surprising structure, pleasant acidity and hints of tropical fruit and citrus. Above all the mineral notes, lingering in a long end. Surprising for such a young wine to be like this. I would match it with spicy seafood.

Randomly came across this steadfast blanc. Floral and smooth... accompanies a spicy meal if that's your style...

Light straw color. Bouquet of tropical fruits. If you are looking for a dry sauvignon blanc, this is for you. Tastes of green apples, lemon, and mineral.

A nice New Zealand SB. Full tropical fruit flavors. This is a good example of the distinct NZ style.

    Had a too cold glass at The Fish Market for lunch with tilapia. Not a fair opportunity, so I likely missed a lot. It was clean, grassy, a light citrus, and that finish that clears the taste buds.

    Love this wine. It's a great one to serve at a party, I've not had anyone not like it.

    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.
