Winemaker's Notes:

Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant cool climate pinot noir at its best.

Floral and cherry with juicy black plum and violet nuances, carried by a lingering seductive texture.

About Oyster Bay:

The philosophy of Oyster Bay Marlborough is to produce fine, distinctively regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours - wines that drink well within a year or two of vintage, yet possess the balance of structure to reward cellaring.

The Oyster Bay label is owned by Delegat's Wine Estate, one of New Zealand's largest family owned and managed wine producers.

The first Oyster Bay vines were planted in 1988 and the label takes its name from the local Oyster Bay, situated in the picturesque headlands of the Marlborough Sounds, on the northern tip of New Zealand's beautiful South Island.

The natural siting advantages of the Oyster Bay vineyards are complemented by our intensive and careful viticultural practices including vine spacing, trellis configuration, canopy management and irrigation and vine monitoring systems.

The glorious result is consistently high quality grapes which, together with sensitive skilled winemaking, express the unique character of Marlborough.
