Winery Tasting Notes

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines with glorious fruit flavours. Oyster Bay Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris captures the delicate aromatic flavours of Pinot Gris whilst retaining its natural vibrancy and purity.

Grown in our cooler vineyard sites, the fruit ripens slowly over the growing season, developing flavour intensity and hallmark aromatic characteristics. We match lower yielding clones to moderately free draining sandy loam soils, which produce smaller and more concentrated fruit with a lively assertive backdrop.

To capture the subtle flavours of Pinot Gris, we use a selection of yeasts, and lees stir to enhance the wine’s

softness and texture. To ensure purity of flavour, we use no oak or malolactic fermentation. A unique cool climate expression of this wonderfully aromatic varietal. Elegant, crisp and altogether refreshing.

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.
