Made by the Rose family, one of New Zealand’s most highly respected winemaking families. Phil and Chris Rose (husband and wife) planted some of the first Sauvignon vines in Marlborough in 1978 and today they are renowned for their top-drawer Sauvignons exhibiting intense fruit characteristics and classical elegance. Sunshine Bay is our most popular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and the 2018 is sure to delight.
Phil and Chris selected parcels from extremely low-yielding estate vineyards to give this the intense aromatics and fruit concentration that Marlborough is renowned for
The extended Rose family are all heavily involved in the business so they are a true family owned and managed winery
This vintage is another great expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with brisk lemon and lime flavours and cut grass freshness. It’s hard to think of anything more refreshing than a glass poured straight from the fridge at the end of a long day
Tasting note: Citrus fruit aromas of lemon and lime mingle with typical Sauvignon aromas of gooseberry and freshly cut grass. With a crisp mineral freshness, this makes the perfect aperitif.
