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 EnthusiastBright and fruity, this wine offers notes of passion fruit, citrus, white spice, ginger and grass. There seems to be a touch of residual sugar on the palate to balance the acidity and add texture to the fruit. Crisp, refreshing and citrusy, this checks all of the Marlborough SB boxes.

Wine AdvocateI was pleasantly surprised by the performance of Oyster Bay's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. In a year when so many bargain-priced brands seem to suffer from lack of intensity, it offers bold notes of passion fruit and a touch of guava. It's light to medium-bodied, and I suspect there's a touch of sweetness, as it finishes a bit soft, but overall, it's a commendable effort.
