Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This perennial classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc has exuberant aromas of gooseberry, grass, cream of asparagus, jalape├▒o 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.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: asparagus, grilled vegetables, salads, pork, poultry, salmon, steamed clams, pan-fried scallops, mussels and, oh yeah, oysters.

This Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2008 was reviewed on May 7, 2009 by Natalie MacLean

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

The Financial Times of London

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.
