Vinification Details

  • A combination of open and closed top stainless steel fermentation tanks adds more complexity to the wine. Following pre-fermentation maceration, the must is inoculated with pure yeast cultures. The open ferment is hand plunged multiple times a day and a small portion of the blend run off to complete fermentation in French oak barriques. After maceration, the wine is pressed off into tank and French oak barriques to complete malolactic fermentation and matured for up to 12 months prior to final blending.

History

  • Our first vintage was coined ‘the elusive stuff of dreams' by UK wine writer Giles Kime. Intriguingly, the older vines create youthful expressiveness, combined with seductive silky complexity and dark fruit flavours from our vineyards across the Marlborough region. 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.

Regional Information

  • The Marlborough region, nestled at the tip of New Zealand's South Island, enjoys an extended growing season that helps us to create our extraordinary cool climate Pinot Noir. From the first planting in 1973, Marlborough has matured to produce some of New Zealand's best Pinot Noir. The combination of warm sunny days and cool nights make Marlborough's climate ideal for growing the famously temperamental grape.
