From the famed home of cool climate flavor intensity, Oyster Bay Chardonnay is a delightful breath of fresh air and displays a style of its own. Its assertive and refreshing flavors are captured and partnered with subtle oak bringing a delicate texture to the wine. New Zealand produces world-class Chardonnay and Marlborough is at the heart of it all as the country’s premier grape-growing region. Marlborough’s warm days and cool nights create an extended growing season allowing the grapes to develop strong, intense varietal characteristics while maintaining a balanced, crisp natural acidity. Fragrant white peach, vibrant citrus with lingering lime zest and a creamy texture. Pairs perfectly with full-flavored creamy dishes, seafood, and chicken.

Technical notes
The fruit was destemmed and lightly pressed, with the free run juice clarified to partial clarity, racked into stainless steel fermentation tanks, and inoculated with a pure yeast culture. Part of the ferment was transferred to French oak barriques and allowed a slow temperature-controlled fermentation for several weeks. The barrique-fermented wine was lees stirred regularly and matured for a period of months to achieve maximum softness and retention of varietal flavors. The tank fermented portion was held on yeast lees, stirred, racked, and prepared for final blending. A small portion of malolactic fermentation was undertaken. The resulting wine was then blended and filtered prior to bottling.
