Vinification The free-run juice is cold settled, followed by a slow, temperature controlled primary fermentation to develop elegant, assertive flavours in the base wine (Cuvée). The Cuvée is then inoculated with yeast to undertake a secondary fermentation, which develops the delicate, finely bubbled palate and refreshing finish in the wine. Following a period of lees contact to build complexity, the wine is bottled young to capture the fresh, varietal intensity.
History The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional Super Premium wines that are elegant and assertive, with glorious fruit flavours. Oyster Bay produces wines from the renowned regions of Marlborough and Hawke's Bay.
Regional Information The Hawke's Bay wine region is arguably the most exciting find for the cultivation of sparkling wine in New Zealand. Ancient alluvial river terraces provide for a superb mix of soils over gravelly, free-draining sub soils, with an abundance of pure river water for irrigation. With a temperate maritime climate, the vines are warmed by strong clear sunlight during the day and cooled at night by the sea breezes of the Pacific Ocean.
