Love the fresh melon notes on the nose and palate of this lovely New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! Aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass, chives and lime citrus. Not grassy. Cool climate white wine at its best. Pair with shellfish.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon green with traditional notes of kiwis, gooseberry, lemongrass and cilantro herbs. Flavours splash ahead with green apples, grapefruit, lemon peel, grass and flinty liveliness. Acidity is high, with a light body and finish with fine rocky minerals lingering in the finish. Pair with herbed chicken and goats cheese. 89 points - tasted November 2018
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Oyster Bay SB is always a classic order to go with your seafood towers, salads, and white pasta. Gooseberry, guava, lychee, white pepper, basil and loads of lime and herb on the sip, this wine is always going to wake up your palate.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Citrus and tropical fruit aromas with lemon, grapefruit and passion fruit notes on the palate. Finishes with nice minerality. Nice acidity throughout. Pair with roasted chicken. Tasted November 2018.

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.

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.
