Cloudy Bay vineyard leads oyster season globally

Media Release 11 March 2014

Cloudy Bay vineyard leads oyster season globally

This year, two of New Zealand’s finest local luxuries Cloudy Bay Pelorus and freshly shucked oysters will be served together as a first of the season food and wine pairing. From 10 March, 19 of New Zealand’s top restaurants will be taking part in the launch of Cloudy Bay Pelorus & Oysters. The delicious crisp palate and creamy complexity of Cloudy Bay Pelorus is the perfect wine match for the taste of freshly shucked Bluff oysters.

Joining New Zealand, top restaurants in Australia including Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne will also take part in this new Cloudy Bay culinary experience. Diners will be able to indulge in perfectly chilled Cloudy Bay Pelorus, served by the glass or bottle with freshly shucked bluff oysters served over ice in a custom made Cloudy Bay wooden crate.

Cloudy Bay winemaker Nick Blampied-Lane describes Cloudy Bay Pelorus Brut as, “Elegance meets complexity in a mélange of citrus and toasted brioche. Pair that with the exquisite Foveaux Straight tang of Bluff oysters and you have culinary bliss."

A serendipitous match, Cloudy Bay Pelorus takes its name from the famous dolphin of the Cook Strait, Pelorus Jack, who guided sailors and ships through treacherous waters including Pelorus Sound, which is a popular oyster destination.

The Cloudy Bay Pelorus & Oyster pairing starts on 10 March and will continue throughout the year with different varieties of oysters as they are in season.

Bookings are necessary with each participating restaurant.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
