oysterbayName of Winery: Oyster Bay Marlborough Winery

Name of Wine: Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc

Region: New Zealand, Marlborough

Grapes: Not Documented

Characteristics: Lively penetrating fruit

Look: Velvety

Smell: Hints of fruit

Taste: Crip with hints of gooseberry, kiwi, passion fruit

Finish: Dry, Smooth

Food Pairing:  This wine pairs well with any kind of cheese, fruit and a bit of spice.  The pairing that was presented was in keeping with the time of year (Thanksgiving) while still featuring the foods that go best with the wine.  Slightly sweet crackers with cranberry and almonds were offered with a mild cranberry cheese from England that some said tasted like cheese cake.  As a second snack, ground turkey was mixed with baked sweet potato, ginger and orange zest for a baked turkey fritter.
