Pale straw green in colour with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively fruit characters. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit fl avours with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing.

85pts, Wine Advocate:I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of Oyster Bay's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. In a year when so many bargain-priced brands seem to suffer from lack of intensity, it offers bold notes of passion fruit and a touch of guava. It's light to medium-bodied, and I suspect there's a touch of sweetness, as it finishes a bit soft, but overall, it's a commendable effort.
88pts, Wine Enthusiast:Bright and fruity, this wine offers notes of passion fruit, citrus, white spice, ginger and grass. There seems to be a touch of residual sugar on the palate to balance the acidity and add texture to the fruit. Crisp, refreshing and citrusy, this checks all of the Marlborough SB boxes.
