Natalie's Score: 91/100

Oyster Bay's Pinot Noir 2016 of this lovely Pinot Noir is nicely crafted with ripe black cherries, plum, dried savoury herbs and cake spice. This is a solid PN, intense with crisp acidity. Toasty oak on the nose of this 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, from roast chicken to salmon. Enjoy now with roast lamb and veal dishes.

Pinot Noir food pairings: planked salmon, barbecued duck, veggie mushroom burger, frittata.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

From Oyster Bay in the Marlborough, this 2016 Pinot Noir is toasty, ripe black cherries on the nose. smoky with ripe plum, dark cherries, savoury herbs and cake spice flavours on the palate with mouth-watering acidity. Great food wine to drink now and pair with grilled lamb lollipops. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
