Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I love trying new Pinot Noir's and I really enjoyed this Oyster Bay Pinot Noir from New Zealand. Fragrant berry and cherry aromas on the nose combined with pleasant plum and spice notes on the palate. A very nice lingering finish.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
