Wine Pairings for Oysters

Have an oyster get-together all planned out for this weekend, but forgot about the wine? No worries, we’ve compiled a list of oyster-friendly wines for you.

Our wine experts handpicked these selections to complement the complex, delicate flavors of fresh oysters:

Firestone Santa Ynez Riesling
The final composition exudes flavors and aromas of green apple, lemon and lime zest, mandarin, jasmine tea and just the right amount of sweetness.

Domaine Wachau Gruner Veltliner
Bright straw yellow, inviting and open on the nose with aromas of white pepper, gooseberry and hints of yellow apple. Medium bodied with a crisp acidity, very balanced and spicy finish. A typical Gruner Veltliner at Federspiel level, subtle and very racy.

J Moreau Chablis
Golden in color with a very fruity bouquet of lime and pineapple, with a mild mineral hint. Very fresh in the attack with pronounced fruit, a dense structure and a long-lasting, smooth finish. Great as an aperitif and perfect with oysters.

Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc
Expressive and bursting with aromas of white grapefruit, pomelo, nectarine and lemon thyme, hints of fresh oregano and yellow guava finish out the profile. Crisp in texture with bright acidity, the Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc utilizes Matanzas Creek’s entire breadth of winemaking techniques to create a beautiful wine.

Domaine Auchere Sancerre
The nose combines mostly fruity aromas of citrus and exotic fruits—grapefruit, lychee and white peach aromas. It’s clean and crisp, balanced with good richness with a long lingering finish.
