Sunshine Bay is our most popular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and the stunning 2017 vintage tastes better than ever. It’s made by husband-and-wife team Phil and Chris Rose, who planted some of Marlborough’s first Sauvignon vines in 1978 on Marlborough’s now-famous ‘Golden Mile’.
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.
