Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016


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 EnthusiastThis ticks all the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc boxes: cut grass, snow pea, nectarine and citrus, all bundled into a medium-bodied wine that comes across as dry, silky and refreshing.

Wine SpectatorThere's good intensity and plenty of juiciness to the lemon-lime and green apple flavors in this focused and mouthwatering white, a whiff of green tea lingering. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported.
