Lots of sun and cool nights make Marlborough one of the best wine regions in the world. You’ll taste why in this classic Sauvignon. Despite its namesake, Andrew Bailey's white is anything but shy – full of fruit flavour, round, juicy and elegant.

Albatross are impressive creatures. The largest of all sea birds and most frequently seen soaring above the oceans of the southern hemisphere. Shy, they come ashore only to breed, usually on remote islands – like New Zealand. It was watching the birds fly above the breathtaking, ocean side landscapes of his Marlborough home that Andrew Bailey – a self-described “eccentric Southerner“ – decided that The Shy Albatross was the perfect name for his new wine. Majestic, soaring and full of character, it’s everything customers adore about Kiwi Sauvignon. Enjoy tropical melon, gooseberry, and citrus aromas that lead to a crisp palate of passionfruit, herbs, and a refreshing, long finish. Pure 'pour me another glass now' drinking pleasure.
