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.

  • Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Very light, noticeably translucent/transparent red. Somewhat delicate yet complex nose with note of leather and cigar box, and some blackberry fruit. Surprisingly light and fruit forward on the palate with balanced soft acidity. A great PN for value, but I was hoping for greater complexity and length on the palate after sniffing this one.

  • Oyster Bay Pinot Noir Marlborough 2011

    Snoothrank:

    seems like it's ever-young wine... It's not of course but light red color, much acidity and bright fruity taste make it younger than it is. Very nice easy to drink wine but overpriced. Read More

  • This is always one of the most difficult things I have to do each year. Sit down and try to figure out who will Snooth’s Winery of the year be?I'm never going to please everybody, or most  of the people even, but I try and select someone, or some winery that does two things. The first is to produce wines that I really like. Ha! Sorry about that ... Read More

    Wine review by annecara


  • Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This is a lighter style wine with a shorter finish than is common for NZ Sauv Blancs. Some pungent Gardenia and cat pee in the nose but this wine falls short of their other vintages. My rating 84. Read More

  • Oyster Bay Merlot Marlborough 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nothing too special with this New Zealand merlot. A bit of that barn floor nose, musty on the mid palate with medium body, dark cherry and medium fine tannin. Not a lot of fresh fruit, somewhat on the bland side. Read More
