James Suckling "Aromas of sliced lime, guava, star fruit, savory herbs and flowers. Medium-bodied, fresh and crisp with a juicy, mouthwatering nature. Flavorful and bright."

Falstaff "Powerful varietal aroma, green bell peppers, kiwi, green gooseberries, nettle, boxwood, elderflower. Juicy fresh on the palate, medium-bodied, pithy finish, good chilled as an aperitif or with grilled fish or poultry." (2022 vintage)

James Suckling "A pure nose of guava, gooseberries, lime and a grassy character. Fresh and bright with high-toned acidity in a textured palate with a mouthwatering finish. Simple, but tangy and delicious." (2022 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "A comparatively rich nose of white grapefruit rind, dried herbs and a pungent grassy greenness leads to a slippery textured palate that's buoyed by crisp acidity." (2022 vintage)

Decanter World Wine Awards "Soft apple and citrus notes with a herbaceous edge; warm and generous with a long finish." (2022 vintage)

Winemaker "A zest for the extraordinary....Stunningly aromatic tropical fruits and bright citrus notes, with a refreshingly zesty finish."

100% Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol: 12.5%

Oyster Bay wines capture the special character of New Zealand's cool climate viticulture … elegant assertive wines with glorious fruit flavours.

The Sauvignon Blanc taste is one of the most identifiable in the world of white wines for a few reasons. First, it always has crisp, high acidity. Second, it has a chemical compound called pyrazine which gives grassy, herbal or bell pepper flavors. When grown in cooler climates or picked early, the herbaceous green character is most prominent. In warmer climates or allowed to hang longer on the vine, the pyrazine character diminishes in favor of riper fruit flavors ranging from grapefruit, to passion fruit and guava.
