The philosophy at Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. Cuvee Brut is an exclusively Chardonnay sparkler in fragrant Blancs de blancs styling, crafted through the best of new world winemaking techniques to capture and showcase New Zealand's unique cool climate character. It all starts in the vineyard with select clones of Chardonnay characterised by small, intensely flavoured grapes. A rejuvenating wine with a clean, fresh palate, New Zealand at its sparkling best.
Oyster Bay takes its name from the local bay at the tip of New Zealand's majestic South Island. Oyster Bay's reputation has been built from vines grown in Marlborough's central Wairau Valley and the North Island's salubrious Hawkes Bay region, both are now recognised as being among the great wine growing regions of the world. Chardonnay vines trained to yield fruit specifically for the vinification of sparkling wines are grown on ancient alluvial river terraces, producing grapes full of concentrated, pure varietal flavours along with a natural zesty acidity, ideal for the creation of super premium sparklers. Fruit is harvested early, crushed and inoculated with neutral yeasts to accentuate the Chardonnay varietal character.
TASTING NOTES
A blonde coloured wine with a rich foam and a very fine, persistent bead. Fragrances of citrus and apple, stonefruits, melon and quince. Elegant cool climate varietal intensity on the palate, radiant lime, citrus and white peach, accentuated by a finely bubbled palate culminating in a crisp, refreshing finish. A wine of elegance, finesse and minerality. The lively bubbles are a result of natural secondary fermentation, which brings to life the delightful and refreshing expressions of a pure Chardonnay Cuvee Brut.

About the Oyster Bay Winery
From its very first vintage, which won gold and the coveted Marquis de Goulaine Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc at the 22nd International Wine & Spirit Competition in London 1991, Oyster Bay has continued to define the very essence of Marlborough
Set in the alluvial heart of Marlborough, one of the world's most recognised wine-growing regions and a place as beautiful as it is abundant, you will find the vineyards that grew the reputation of Oyster Bay. Here, on the shallow stony soils of the tranquil Wairau Plains, where long, slow summers and cool autumn nights give birth to grapes of intense and fruity flavours, Oyster Bay began, from the very outset, to produce wines of international stature.
