Oyster Bay 2016 (New Zealand: Hawkes Bay)

Name Oyster Bay 2016
Varietal Merlot
Region New Zealand: Hawkes Bay
Notes “Award-winning Oyster Bay Hawke’s Bay Merlot is crafted with time and attention to the finest details... Following gentle pressing, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in tank and in French oak barriques. A large portion of the blend is then aged in French oak barriques over a period of months to provide softness and complexity to the wine. The result is a juicy, fruit-forward New Zealand Merlot that can be enjoyed on any occasion, preferably with great company.” (Winemaker's Notes)
