Moonlight Flat Oysters will take up an exclusive invitation by Hotel Hotel Canberra to join their select artisanal suppliers and have a stand at their garden market.

We will have Clair De Lunes together with a tasting cup of picpoul, the amazingly matched wine with oysters.

Clairs Photo0665Yes!…

That was the Manager’s take on our new “double finish” finishing process.

And he’s not wrong, The vivid green, soft, nutrient-rich weed wrap around these Clairs is the pinnacle of what we aim for, adapted from the French “green oyster” finishing technique.

The process involves clever placement of stock in two exact locations in two estuaries with different “merroir”.

The proof speaks for itself. In back-to-back tastings with a control batch the verdict is 100% consistent: different structure, different richer flavor, different colour.

Viva  la difference!
