A savoury, medium-plus-bodied Merlot with ripe blackberry, dark plum, cherry, mocha and fresh fine herb flavours on the palate. Oyster Bay captures the special character of New Zealand's cool climate viticulture... elegant, assertive wines with glorious fruit flavours.
A leading example of the 'New Zealand Style', fashioned from fruit grown in Hawkes Bay's Bordeaux-esque climate. Plumy, jammy and ripe berry fruits augmented by hints of spice, toasted oak and chocolate aromas are followed by a rich, rounded and fruity palate with subtle oak and spices and an intense finish. Enjoy over the next three years with everything from pizza to spaghetti bolognese and from roast turkey to pork chops.
