Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015


SKU 12203


Oyster Bay takes its name from the local Oyster Bay in Marlborough, on the tip of New Zealand's South Island. Oyster Bay's reputation has been built from vines grown in Marlborough's Wairau Valley. The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with bright fruit flavors. It all starts in the vineyard. They treat each vineyard block and parcel of wine as individual. The fruit is crushed, gently pressed and the juice is cold settled. Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively, penetrating fruit characters. A concentration of tropical, gooseberry, lime and green leaf flavors with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is crisp, elegant and refreshing. Pair this with citrus-accented scallops or shrimp or with fresh goat cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast"Even big brands like Oyster Bay benefitted from the excellent vintage conditions in 2015, so consumers shouldn't be shy about trying some of them. This medium-bodied wine has a pleasant, silky texture, understated graphite and citrus aromas and flavors, and a long, mouthwatering finish."~JC

Wine SpectatorJuicy, smooth and tasty, with crisp green apple, lemon zest and Key lime flavors that dance around a refreshing acidity, showing a hint of lemon verbena.
