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.

2016 vintage added to Paul Roberts Wines February 2018, 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.

This Reserve Sauvignon Blanc represents the finest quality from Marlborough. Succulent passionfruit, guava and blackcurrant notes are underscored by delicate jalapeño and fresh herbal element. Layers of concentrated tropical fruit and citrus flavours are complemented by an attractive, flinty or mineral aspect on the full, rich palate. A mouth-watering, zesty, acidity frames a delicious and lingering finish.

Awards:

95 Points: Bob Campbell MW “Pungently aromatic sauvignon blanc with impressively intense passion fruit, red capsicum and nectarine flavours. A smooth-textured wine that practically defines Marlborough sauvignon blanc. Deliciously drinkable. Great value. “

Gold Medal: New Zealand International Wine Show 2016

“The nose is gently full and concentrated with well-packed aromas of pungent passionfruit harmoniously melded with tropical fruits, fresh herbs and mineral nuances. The aromatics open with ethereal detail and grow in presence with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate features rich and lusciously mouth-filling flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruits, along with fresh herbs and minerals, forming a rounded and concentrated core. The fruit is underlined by very fine textures and refreshing, lacy acidity, and the wine carries to a long, lingering, concentrated finish with fine grip and depth. This is a mouth-filling and concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with pungent passionfruit flavours, freshness and presence.” Raymond Chan Wine Reviews August 2016 - 18.5 / 20
