Forget all your preconceptions about chardonnay – this is a beautifully balanced wine that has only a subtle oakiness. What immediately comes to mind on your first sip is the concentrated flavours of ripe citrus and stonefruit, washed down with a delightfully creamy texture to finish. In fact, this chardonnay slips down all too easily...
Hawke’s Bay is to Merlot what Marlborough is to Sauvignon Blanc and the results are all here in this gloriously fruity wine. ‘Fragrant violet, fresh blackberry and plum with soft alluring spice’ is how Oyster Bay’s chief winemaker describes it – and we’d have to agree!
This elegantly smooth wine was a gold medal winner in the 2014 San Francisco International Wine Competition. With Pinot Noir, fruit is the primary focus and Oyster Bay wine makers take care to extract the maximum flavour at every stage in the wine making process. Silky smooth and with flavours of ripe cherries make this wine a winner.
Produced in New Zealand’s renowned Marlborough region, this Sauvignon Blanc is a true classic. Pale straw green in colour with a brilliant clarity, it has a lovely zestiness with lots of lively fruit characters. Always crisp, elegant and refreshing - this is one wine that will never let you down.
Sparkling Cuvée Rosé
Pink bubbles are always a real crowd pleaser and this bottle is no exception. Both the chardonnay and pinot noir grapes have brought their own qualities to the wine – fruit and finesse from the chardonnay and soft red berry fruits from the pinot noir. The result is a lively sparkling wine with soft fruit flavours and a delicate rose colour. Fabulous!
Sparkling Cuvée Brut
This premium sparkling wine is made from 100% chardonnay grapes to produce a wine that radiates lime, citrus and white peach flavours. These flavours are then brought alive by the zillions of fine bubbles to produce a crisp, refreshing finish that lingers in the mouth. Simply delicious!
