Rapaura Springs (pronounced Ra-para) is a unique oasis in the dry Marlborough landscape with natural underground springs providing a life source for the vines. This pure water enables the vineyards to produce outstanding fruit with minimal intervention. The logo represents springs water flowing from their stony aquifer.

New to Paul Roberts Wines August 2016, Rapaura Springs Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is a selection of the best parcels from the harvest, resulting in a sub-regional blend of wines. It has been made to showcase the diversity of the flavours produced in Marlborough wine. Rapaura is home to generous ripe fruity flavours, lower and upper Wairau to pungent exotic fruits and passionfruit, the Waihopai adds a flinty minerality to the mix.

The 2016 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc displays pink grapefruit, white nectarine and passionfruit aromas combined with lifted herbal and zesty citrus notes. A textural, fruit driven, wine it offers layer upon layer of delicious citrus and tropical fruit flavours. An underlying, attractive, flinty-ness combines with the tasty fruit flavours and crisp acidity to deliver a long and refreshing finish.

93 Points: “The wine is intensely expressed on the nose showing passionfruit, feijoa, green rock melon and lime zest characters. It is powerful and richly fruited on the palate, and delivers excellent concentration and fine texture, wonderfully structured by juicy acidity. Hugely appealing, this is another beauty under this label.” Sam Kim
