Toasty oak on the nose of this terrific New Zealand red wine wraps around fleshy ripe black cherries. Full-bodied, mouth-watering juicy and smooth with a great finish. Smoky oak and black cherry notes with some dark spice on the finish. Terrific with a wide range of dishes, especially holiday turkey. Yum!
Pinot Noir food pairings: planked salmon, barbecued duck, veggie mushroom burger, frittata..

|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A delightful Pinot Noir with aromas of black cherries, tobacco, strawberry and leather that follow thought on the palate. This is a very versatile wine that can be paired with a variety of dishes or enjoyed on its own.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Lovely overtly fruity PN typical of NZ PN. Easily appreciated aromas of dark cherry fruit, supplemented by oak. Lighter on the palate that expected, but just what I like in new world PN. Fruit, oak, spice all in balance, with a pleasing glycerine mouthfeel. Oak lingers past the fruit (as with many wines), giving great length. Excellent wine considering the volume produced.....................It's still lingering.................. yup......still lingering............
|Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Smooth, medium full-bodied full of ripe dark fruit. A long finish with traces of smoke and full spice.
Another nice wine for salmon or turkey

Oak and black cherry dominate the nose and palate on this wine. The palate adds a some earthiness and a touch of spice that lingers into the finish. A good pairing with roast pork or cedar planked salmon.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Oyster Bay Pinot Noir is one of the most popular Pinot's across Canada. It's got a great balance of smoked cherry, plum, herbs and spice, with terrific balance and a smooth yet textured mouthfeel making it a great complement to grilled lamb, venison, pork and chicken. An excellent hostess gift wine also given its inviting style. Tasted October 2016. 90+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Light red cherry, smoke, new leather and a slight touch of green-ness. The taste follows quite closely; light and balanced in the mouth, very little tannin, but good acidity. Light and nicely balanced. Very long, smoky finish.
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Ripe, red cherries abound! Lots of cherries on the nose and palate, mixed with vanilla, baking spice, leather and strawberries. Good complexity with a lighter body, and medium acidity, that would good well with a charcuterie plate or delicious on it's own slightly chilled.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This Marlborough Pinot Noir shows the best of NZ's cool climate viticulture. Mild plums and mocha aromas lead into tart plum, cherry, earth, mocha and baking spice on the palate. It's extra-dry, fairly light-bodied, with a tart fruit finish. Very versatile with many dishes, from grilled salmon, pork tenderloin to turkey or duck.
Tasted Oct. 2016
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The Oyster Bay Pinot Noir is a classic favourite for many Canadian palates. It's light bodied, crowd-pleasing, and easy drinking. This proven pinot shows moderate notes of candied cranberry, fresh mint, spice and balanced acidity. Enjoy pairing with a duck or turkey roast. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa - bespoketastings.ca
|Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Ripe strawberry, red cherry, vanilla baking spices, green bean, and a bit of leather and earth on the nose. The medium light palate offers a nice combination of these elements, along with a sense of warm cinnamon. Medium-high acidity and medium low tannins. Medium length.
|New Zealand Pinot Noir offers that unique combination of fleshy fruit and zingy juiciness. Oyster Bay is part of the Delegat wine portfolio and a solid producer of good value wines including this New Zealand Pinot Noir. The winery is a founding member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand and a leader in water conservation and wetland protection. - Community Wine Reviews|
