The philosophy of Oyster Bay New Zealand 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 the vintage, yet possess the balance of structure to reward cellaring. Oyster Bay New Zealand is owned by Delegat's Wine Estate Limited, one of New Zealand's largest family owned wine producers - passionate about New Zealand wine for more than 60 years.
Hawke's Bay's ancient alluvial river terraces provide for a superb mix of soils over gravelly, free-draining sub-soils. With a maritime climate, the vines are warmed by strong sunlight during the day and at night, by cool Pacific Ocean breezes.

This review is for the 2011 vintage
Having read the previous review,it just goes to show everyone has their own taste. Having spent some time working my way through the various Champagne vinyards of the region, I have to say this NZ fizz is worth every penny. It easily compares to a £30-£40 bottle of true champagne. It has a light body, crisp dry flavour and is very suited to drinking on its own or with a pudding. I'd recommend tis sparkling wine, unless you need to have the word 'Champagne' on the bottle at the table.

I expect so much from the Oyster Bay label. This was weak and tasteless. Certainly plenty of "fizz", but that was about all. Leave the taste to France or Spain. I won't be purchasing again!
