WINE: OYSTER BAY Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Type: White, Sauvignon Blanc
Origin: Marlborough, New Zealand
Approx Cost: $20

This is probably the ultimate chick wine at the moment. NZ Sav Blancs are just ridiculously popular with the fairer sex right now. But that’s neither here nor there.

Light gold with green edges. This is a textbook sav blanc on the palate. A lot of citrus at the start with lemon and orange rind. That makes way for guava, sharp floral and gardeny flavours, with a bit of oak at the end. A long, creamy finish.

It’s good, it’s clean, it’s sharp. But it just didn’t knock me over.
