KAIPARA OYSTERS, NOTES OF NEW ZEALAND

Dan Dollimore came to his passion for oysters, young. He was born into a family-owned and operated oyster farm. His family is known far and wide for their talent and infrastructure. At university he studied winemaking and viticulture, which taught him to treasure New Zealand’s unique environment. "And when you think about it, good wine and good oysters are not worlds apart. The rewards are immeasurable." They've set new sustainable standards in aquaculture practices to create one of the most delicious oysters ever.

The Gritty Details:

Hatchery seed is suspended on long lines in Seapa Baskets. The baskets float and sink as the tide lifts and falls each day, creating a naturally tumbled oyster.

Flavor Influenced by:

  1. Salinity: 3.5% full oceanic salinity
  2. Tides: Strong 5 knot currents and huge tidal flushing each day
  3. Bottom Makeup: Ancient drowned river valley bottom composed of sand and silt
