James Suckling 90
A perfumed white with lots of gooseberry, fresh fennel and passion-fruit flavors, as well as some sage and mint undertones. Light-bodied and tangy with crisp acidity and a refreshing finish.-JS
Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc takes on the magical flavours of passion fruit, bright citrus and gooseberry, with a zesty finish.-Winemakers Notes
The philosophy of Oyster Bay Marlborough is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours - wines that drink well within a year or two of vintage, yet possess the balance of structure to reward cellaring.
The Oyster Bay label is owned by Delegat's Wine Estate, one of New Zealand's largest family owned and managed wine producers.
The first Oyster Bay vines were planted in 1988 and the label takes its name from the local Oyster Bay, situated in the picturesque headlands of the Marlborough Sounds, on the northern tip of New Zealand's beautiful South Island.
The natural siting advantages of the Oyster Bay vineyards are complemented by our intensive and careful viticultural practices including vine spacing, trellis configuration, canopy management and irrigation and vine monitoring systems.
The glorious result is consistently high quality grapes which, together with sensitive skilled winemaking, express the unique character of Marlborough.-Winery Notes

Oyster Bay is a special place. Here in the South Pacific Ocean, on the tip of the Marlborough Sounds, it's a world away. For many wine lovers around the world it's a special wine too. From New York to Sydney to London and beyond, we are enormously proud Oyster Bay is one of the most sought after Super Premium wines internationally.
From the moment we released our first vintage, we knew. Not only did we win 'best in world' for our Sauvignon Blanc in 1991, we thrilled palates with New Zealand's unique cool climate flavour intensity.
Oyster Bay is a passion. It's a vision. It's a single minded promise to bring the best of New Zealand wine to the world. We don't make reserves, anything more or less. We don't reserve anything. We are the same family that's been here from the very beginning, only grown a little, and learnt a lot. Oyster Bay has many stories. We can't wait to hear yours.
