Rapaura Springs grow and source grapes from across all of Marlborough’s sub-regions and then make excellent wine with minimal intervention from the wine making team.
This approach allows them the opportunity to capture and deliver all of the wonderful flavours Marlborough has to offer.
The 2018 growing season in Marlborough was not without some challenges. December gave perfect flowering conditions, January was one of the warmest on record, February delivered some rain and March was characterised by extended dry periods and high sunshine hours. Despite all this, the fruit ripened nicely on the vines, earlier than normal, to give clean, ripe and intensely flavoured fruit come harvest in April. Once harvested, the fruit was gently pressed and the juice fermented at cool temperatures to capture the vibrant fruit flavours from the vineyards. Rapaura Springs Sauvignon Blanc has a broad range of fine fruit flavours from each of the Marlborough sub-regions.
Winemakers Tasting Note – 2018
“Our 2018 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc displays lifted passionfruit, lychee and pink grapefruit aromas with herbal and zesty citrus notes. A pure and vibrant wine with layers of delicious tropical citrus fruits and gooseberry flavours. Pure, fresh and vibrant fruit flavours and crisp acidity combine to deliver a long and refreshing finish. A quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.” Michael Bann
