Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fi ne, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit fl avours. Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay truly captures the character of Marlborough with pure, incisive, ripe fruit fl avours. A combination of barrel and tank fermentation and the stirring of yeast lees achieves maximum softness, integration and texture. To retain all the natural assertiveness and fl avour, no malolactic fermentation takes place. Clonal infl uences in the vineyard have been very important, providing smaller berries and enhanced fl avour intensity. The result of all of this is delicious Oyster Bay Marlborough Chardonnay with concentrated aromas and fl avours of ripe citrus and stonefruit, balanced with subtle oak, and a creamy texture to fi nish. A sublime expression of fruit purity from Marlborough's unique cool climate and soils.

Bright citrus with hints of stonefruit, stunning fruit concentration accentuated with a creamy texture and sublime zesty lime undertones.
