Oyster Bay Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris, New Zealand – Technical Information

Oyster Bay Hawke's Bay Pinot Gris captures the delicate aromatic flavors of the grape whilst retaining its natural vibrancy and purity.

Grown in our cooler vineyard sites, the fruit ripens slowly over the growing season, developing flavor intensity and hallmark aromatic characteristics.

To capture the subtle flavors of Pinot Gris, we use a selection of yeasts, and lees stir to enhance the wine’s softness and texture. To ensure purity of flavor, we use no oak or malolactic fermentation.

A unique cool climate expression of this wonderfully aromatic varietal. An elegant, crisp and altogether refreshing white wine.

Oyster Bay Hawke’s Bay Pinot Gris, 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 flavors.

The flavors 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 flavors in every bunch.

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

Uniquely New Zealand, undeniably Oyster Bay.
