Oyster Bay Cuvee Rose

Elegant cool climate varietal intensity - fragant cherry and fresh strawberry aromas.

The philosophy of Oyster Bay is to produce fine, distinctly regional wines that are elegant and assertive with glorious fruit flavours. Oyster Bay Sparkling Cuvée is made to capture and showcase New Zealand’s unique cool-climate varietal intensity by embracing the best of modern New World winemaking technology.

It all starts in the vineyard. We select premium Chardonnay clones with small, intensely flavoured grapes. The vines are grown on ancient alluvial river terraces and produce concentrated, pure varietal flavour along with a natural zesty acidity, which is ideal for creating Super-Premium sparkling wine.

Oyster Bay Sparkling Cuvée Rosé is a wonderful marriage of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The elegant and zesty Chardonnay fruit brings finesse, and the fragrant rich Pinot Noir brings soft red berry fruit characters to the wine.  The lively bubbles in the wine are a result of natural secondary fermentation, which brings to life the delightful and refreshing character.

Oyster Bay Sparkling Cuvée Rosé is a skilful blend of 20% Pinot Noir/80% Chardonnay.

The Pinot Noir grapes are hand picked. The fruit is gently crushed and then pressed for a short period of skin contact which gives the wine its colour and imparts delicate fragrant flavours. The wine then undergoes a primary fermentation in tank.

Free-run Chardonnay juice is cold settled to partial clarity, followed by a slow, temperature controlled primary fermentation at 14°C for several weeks to develop the elegant, assertive flavours.

The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines are blended to create the Cuvée base wine. This is inoculated with neutral yeast, to ensure the pristine and aromatic fruit characters are retained in the wine, and then allowed to undertake a secondary slow fermentation in tank. This process naturally imparts delicate bubbles in the wine. Following a short period of lees contact, the wine is bottled young to capture the fresh, varietal intensity.
