The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. With every vintage we are working with more established vines from small vineyard sites, each chosen for its aspect and uniform soils of moderate fertility, providing for extended ripening and enhanced fruit flavour profiles. With Pinot Noir the fruit is always the primary focus. Each vineyard block is harvested as a separate parcel and treated individually at each stage of the winemaking process. This enables us to influence and enhance the wine using traditional winemaking techniques, adding subtlety and complexity. We use a combination of barrel and tank fermentation and mature the wine in a mix of new and older French oak. Oyster Bay 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. - Winery

The nose on this New Zealand standout is floral and with hints of cherry. The palate is ripe and lushwith bright red fruit along with distinctive juicy black plum and violet nuances, carried by a seductivetexture and a lingering finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2012 was aged for 9 months in French oak barriques prior to final blending. This New Zealand red offers fragrant aromas of cherries, red berry fruit and violets on the nose. On the palate, flavorful sweet fruit with silky tannins, seductive texture and good length.
