Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee lunch. Normal format of 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind.

Grapefruit for days. Wow. Burst from the glass with sea salt, and a rich lemon lime note that sometimes reminds me of Merry Edwards SB. On the palate, this is very light and nimble (AKA not Merry Edwards SB) showing wet rock and lemongrass. I called this NZ SauvBlanc.

Always reliable, fresh and crisp like all the previous vintages.

NZ has a great tradition of producing excellent Sauvignon Blanc and Oyster Bay is no exception, just what you expect from this wine

I taste apples. Taste lingers like wet maple wood. Strong finish.

More bitter than I like but not bad. I had with fish and was nice pairing. Screw top
