Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale straw green in colour with brilliant clarity, Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and aromatic with lots of lively fruit characters. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours with an abundant bouquet, it is a wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing.
Vineyard Notes
The Marlborough vineyards are located in Prime central Wairau, Renwick and Brancott soils. With shallow sandy loams over deep layers of free draining river gravels, providing moderate fertility and low vigour.
Production Notes
Throughout the harvest fruit is selected from progressively later ripening vineyard blocks, starting with the stonier free draining sites. The fruit is first crushed before being gently pressed and the juice cold settled. The juice is clarified and then inoculated with a select range of yeasts for added complexity and aromaticity during fermentation in stainless steel tanks before a long, slow temperature controlled fermentation. Immediate bottling after winemaking ensures the wine retain their fruit flavours and aromas.
Winemaker Notes
Oyster Bays philosophy is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. Accomplishing this goal starts in the vineyard and Oyster bay approach each vineyard block and parcel of wine individually.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with fresh pan fried fish, oysters, salads, canapés, smoked salmon, or spinach and ricotta stuffed cannelloni.
Other Notes
This was the original Oyster bay wine, which happened to win the award off best Sauvignon Blanc in the world when introduced, with a long string of prestigious wine awards following on since.
