We love the holidays. But often times a season meant to be full of merriment can become bogged down with the stress of hosting or being hosted. Leading up to a gathering of loved ones, we find ourselves combing through the aisles of LCBO struggling to find just the right wine to have on-hand for guests or to arrive at a party with.
But picking a people-pleasing option doesn't have to be an ordeal. Next time, reach for a bottle of Oyster Bay. The New Zealand winery is known for capturing the character of the country in their elegant, assertive wines with abundant fruit flavours – like the world's most-loved Sauvignon Blanc. For this wine, the fruit is crushed, gently pressed and then the juice is cold settled. After a long, slow and temperature-controlled fermentation, it is quickly bottled to capture the vibrant fruit flavours and aromatic bouqet. With enticing citrus notes and tropical flavours, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is youthful, elegant and fresh. Expect a long, zesty finish.
If a bright red is more up your alley, Oyster Bay's award-winning Marlborough Pinot Noir is the wine you'll want this holiday season. This fragrant, elegant wine features aromas of ripe cherries on the nose. Juicy black plum and bright red berry flavours are accompanied by a smooth and seductive mouthfeel. Fermented with a combination of barrels and tanks, and matured in a mix of new and old French oak, this is cool climate Pinot Noir at its very best.
For those who say "yay" to Chardonnay, Oyster Bay's is elegantly fragrant with notes of white peach, vibrant citrus and stonefruit, balanced by a subtle oakiness and a delightfully creamy mouthfeel. It's known for being Canada's most popular premium Chardonnay.
Cap off your holiday with a toast, with Oyster Bay Sparkling Cuvée. This marriage of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is elegant, fragrant and zesty – and has the pop-worthiness for any special occasion.
During this season of celebration, Oyster Bay is the perfect companion to any gathering of friends and family. Raise a glass and enjoy it with the ones you love.
