Vinification

Fruit was destemmed, crushed and transferred into stainless fermentation tanks. The must was inoculated with pure yeast cultures to enhance aromatics and fruit characters. Rackings and pump overs were performed during fermentation to obtain delicate tannins and maximise colour extraction. Following gentle pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in tank and French oak barriques. The blend was then oak-aged over a period of months to provide softness and complexity to the wine.

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

Hawke's Bay is one of New Zealand's warmest grape-growing regions. From Crownthorpe's sun-drenched terraces to the stony soils of the Gimblett Gravels, Hawke's Bay produces wine as diverse as the landscape itself, creating a world-class cool climate Merlot.
