Oyster Bay MERLOT

 

Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Merlot
Wine Region: Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Tasting Notes: Bright cherry aromas and rich plum with subtle spice and a soft lingering texture. It’s fragrant, elegant and soft.

 

The Estate: 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. The brand was established in 1990. Hawke’s Bay is the warmest grape growing region. From its abundant, clear sunlight and ancient soils.

Aged in French oak barriques to impart complexity. A wonderful Merlot perfectly crafted to accompany any special moment.

 

Suggested food and wine pairing: The best food pairings are pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, especially with pancetta/bacon or mushrooms. Grilled chicken, especially with Mediterranean grilled vegetables such as peppers, courgettes and aubergines, charcuterie (selection of salami, pate, terrine and cheese). Oily fish (salmon, tuna), shellfish (scallops, prawns), cheese (parmesan, Muenster, Brie, Colby and Gorgonzola).
