A perennial favourite and consistently great, Oyster Bay's Pinot Noir is zesty, lush and fresh with juicy red cherry, red berry, dried herbs, cedar brush and vanilla flavours mouth-watering on the palate. Medium-bodied, well-rounded with great acidity for food. Pair with lamb chops.

Reviews and Ratings

From Marlborough, South Island, Oyster Bay 2018 Pinot Noir is smooth and silky with bright red cherry, raspberry, strawberry, dried herbs, cedar spice and vanilla flavours, finishing long and zesty on the palate. An easy-to-enjoy, well-rounded, medium-bodied PN with supple tannins. Pair with pork tenderloin. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
