Oyster Bay takes its name from the local "Oyster Bay" on the tip of New Zealand's majestic South Island. Oyster Bay's reputation has been built from vines grown in Marlborough's central Wairau Valley now recognized as one of the great wine growing regions of the world. Oyster Bay has consistently won many of the world's most-prestigious wine awards and is internationally-recognized for producing "elegant, assertive wines with glorious fruit flavors".
With Pinot Noir the fruit is always Oyster Bay's primary focus. Each vineyard block is harvested as a separate parcel and treated individually at each stage of the winemaking process. This enables them to influence and enhance the wine using traditional winemaking techniques, adding subtlety and complexity. Oyster Bay uses a combination of barrel and tank fermentation and mature the wine in a mix of new and older French oak. This Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant cool climate pinot noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavourful with aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length.
