Lillian rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Definitely served chilled (I have this wine ready to serve in my fridge at all times). It's a nice light white wine, easy on the palate. A little sweet and not completely fruity wine. I've had it with our homemade mushroom risotto, chicken, baked salmon and my favourite cheeses: piave vecchio or a pecorino infused with herbes de provence.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crisp, acidic - everything you expect a Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand to be. Lots of tropical fruits and would go great with a crisp salad and a vinaigrette dressing. A nice summer picnic wine.
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals prefer to pair their wine with acts of derring-do rather than food. Therefore a somewhat acidic wine such as Oyster Bay sauvignon blanc seems a bit harsh, like a hard dismount off the trapeze during one of our circus training sessions. Follow Natalie's advice and pair this one with seafood or salad or seafood salad.

A bright Sauvignon Blanc coming out of a region that KNOWS how to do Sauvignon Blanc well...I'm not the only one who thinks so. Hints of tropical fruit, such as pineapple and mango, come at you behind the classic grassy herbaceousness that makes a Sauv Blanc so wonderful. An extremely good wine for the price point. Drink now through 2014.
