The fruit is crushed, gently pressed, and the juice is cold settled. A long, slow temperature controlled fermentation and immediate bottling after winemaking retains all the wonderful fruit flavors and aromas that are present. Pale straw green in color with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively fruit characters. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit flavors with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant, and refreshing.

Wine SpectatorCrisp and light, this mouthwatering, balanced white offers green apple, grapefruit and lemon notes, with a hint of freshly grated ginger on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastThis seems to be sitting under a blanket of sulfur that is somewhat masking the lemon-lime, grapefruit, pineapple, nettle and vegetal aromas. It's oily in texture on the palate, with more flavors of citrus and tropical fruit cut by sharp acidity. The finish feels a touch sour.
