Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Crisp green apple and white stonefruit – elegant and intense with a lingering lemon creaminess.

Palate

The wine shows concentrated aromas and flavours of ripe citrus and stonefruit, balanced with subtle oak, and a creamy texture to finish. A sublime expression of fruit purity from Marlborough’s unique cool climate and soils.

Winemaking Notes

Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay truly captures the character of Marlborough with pure, incisive, ripe fruit flavours. A combination of barrel and tank fermentation and the stirring of lees on oak, achieves maximum softness and integration. To retain all the natural assertiveness and flavour, no malolactic fermentation takes place. Clonal influences in the vineyard have been very important, providing smaller berries and enhanced flavour intensity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Set in the alluvial heart of Marlborough, one of the world's most recognised wine-growing regions and a place as beautiful as it is abundant, you will find the vineyards that grew the reputation of Oyster Bay. Here, on the shallow stony soils of the tranquil Wairau Plains, where long, slow summers and cool autumn nights give birth to grapes of intense and fruity flavours, Oyster Bay began, from the very outset, to produce wines of international stature.

Marlborough provides Oyster Bay with the perfect mix of sun and soil to produce wines of great character - distinctive, assertive, cool-climate chardonnays, sauvignon blancs and pinot noirs that define the very essence - and exclusivity - of New Zealand viticulture.

If Marlborough was the birthplace of Oyster Bay, then Hawkes Bay, on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island, is its second home. Here on silty, sun-drenched alluvial plains carved by ancient glaciers, Oyster Bay grows some of New Zealand's most elegant and exciting, cool-climate Merlots.
