Oyster Bay Wines:
Internationally-recognised for producing "elegant, assertive wines with glorious fruit flavours", Oyster Bay is also a winemaker with great viticultural vision. It was Oyster Bay that had the foresight, over two decades ago, to recognise the enormous wine-growing potential that lay beneath the stony, alluvial soils of a marginal sheep farming district in New Zealand's Hawkes Bay. Today that region is producing New Zealand's finest merlots.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Nice clean temperate climate Chardonnay with muted toasted oak and good apple-pear flavor notes. Decent quality for the price and improving.

Cool, crisp, refreshing but apart from a slightly clean initial taste, I don't see it being that spectacular and pretty much run of the mill Chardonnay. Its ok but fairly standard.

An easy-drinking Chardonnay from New Zealand. Clean and fruit driven on the palate with yellow apple fruit aromas.

Winemaker's Notes: The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fi ne, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit fl avours. Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay truly captures the character of Marlborough with pure, incisive, ripe fruit fl avours. A combination of barrel and tank fermentation and the stirring of yeast lees achieves maximum softness, integration and texture. To retain all the natural assertiveness and fl avour, no malolactic fermentation takes place. Clonal infl uences in the vineyard have been very important, providing smaller berries and enhanced fl avour intensity. The result of all of this is delicious Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay with concentrated aromas and fl avours of ripe citrus and stonefruit, balanced with subtle oak, and a creamy texture to fi nish. A sublime expression of fruit purity from Marlborough’s unique cool climate and soils. Bright citrus with hints of stonefruit, stunning fruit concentration accentuated with a creamy texture and sublime zesty lime undertones.
