The wine that started it all. The first Oyster Bay. Which happened to win the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world. Its brilliant clarity, extraordinary aromatic flavours and refreshing zest are both thrilling and enthralling.

It all starts in our Marlborough vineyards, in the region famous for introducing elegant, cool climate New Zealand wines to the world. Marlborough’s warm days and cool nights create an extended growing season allowing the grapes to develop strong, intense varietal characteristics whilst maintaining a balanced, crisp natural acidity. The result is a distinct wine that is always crisp, elegant, and refreshing. Uniquely Marlborough and undeniably Oyster Bay.

Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand – Technical Information

Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc all starts in the vineyard. We treat each vineyard block and parcel of wine individually. The fruit is harvested at optimum maturity, crushed, gently pressed and the juice is clarified.

A long, slow, temperature controlled fermentation and immediate bottling after winemaking retains all the wonderful fruit flavours and aromas present.

Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is pale straw green in colour with brilliant clarity. A concentration of assertive passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours with an abundant bouquet, it is a white wine that is always crisp, elegant and refreshing.

Oyster Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand – Winemaking Techniques

Our winemaking philosophy is to capture the special character of New Zealand’s cool climate viticulture – to consistently produce distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours.

The flavours we love so much are there from the moment we pick the grapes. They come from the unique cool climate and ancient soils where our vines grow and we work hard, using a science and a love of the land to create remarkable flavours in every bunch.

We call these elegant and assertive wines with glorious fruit flavours.

Uniquely New Zealand, undeniably Oyster Bay.
