I mentioned in a recent post that I had to take a little break from the blog due to circumstances beyond my control. Nonetheless, prior to the hiatus I had managed to squirrel away a number of tasting notes from wines I’d enjoyed in previous months. Not wanting to waste the work and hoping to perhaps relive some enjoyable moments, I have decided to go ahead and post them. They may be a little past their “post by” date, but I hope they will still prove to be of interest. This Oyster Bay is one example.
Winemaker: Oyster Bay
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: Marlborough, NZ
Notes: The bouquet of this New Zealand white was very pungent with scents of citrus and guava. Acidity was pretty high, and it was light-bodied. At 13% alcohol, the wine packed plenty of flavor consisting primarily of citrus, guava and grass. This is another fun and unctuous Kiwi wine.
