Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2008 Wine Review
Vintages Wine Panel: This perennial classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has exuberant aromas of gooseberry, grass, cream of asparagus, jalapeño peppers and melon. It's intense and lively with crisp acidity and a lingering, slightly minerally finish. My note: One of my favorite New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, especially in this price range. Bursting with gooseberry freshness, lemon zest, passionfruit and lime. Medium-bodied. This one will wake up your mouth and stir your appetite. 4.4/5 Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: asparagus, grilled vegetables, salads, pork, poultry, salmon, steamed clams, pan-fried scallops, mussels and, oh yeah, oysters.
