Description/ Tasting NotesOyster 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 berryfruit characters to the wine. We select premium Chardonnay clones with small, intensely flavoured grapes. These low-yielding 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. The Pinot Noir vines are grown on alluvial silt soils to provide uniform ripening and fruit concentration. These Pinot Noir grapes are carefully handpicked to protect the fruit flavours, which also deliver a delicate colour 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, New Zealand at its sparkling best.
