Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. Fragrant, soft and flavourful with aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length.

Winemaking Note

With every vintage we are working with more established vines from a steadily growing number of small vineyard blocks, each site chosen specifically for its uniform soils of moderate fertility providing for slow ripening and enhanced flavour development.

With Pinot Noir the fruit is always the primary focus, but of course we have many opportunities to influence it with traditional winemaking techniques to add subtlety and complexity. We use both barrel and tank fermentation and we also mature with a mix of new and older French oak.

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.
