Marlborough is the place Rapaura Springs call home: to live and create wines of character and beauty. Their goal is to enhance the environment around them through sustainable vineyard and winemaking practices that will leave a natural legacy for future generations.
The journey of Rapaura Springs wines begins far from the vineyards, at a point where the earth claims a share of the Wairau River. After a six month journey through a rocky aquifer, the water is released to a spring that weaves through the vineyard. This spring, depicted on the label, provides both the crystal clear, pure water for their vines but also guides the philosophy behind this family–owned winery.
Launched to critical acclaim in New Zealand with the release of their 2008 Sauvignon Blanc (which was awarded Cuisine magazine’s highest rating of ‘Five Stars’ and ‘Best Buy’) Rapaura Springs continues to produce high quality, award winning wines from New Zealand’s most recognized wine region, winning 14 gold medals and three trophies in the past 11 months.

If you buy no other New Zealand Sauvignon, this is the one to buy. With a lovely balance of fruit and delicious crisp acidity.
An opulent potpourri evoking dates and sun-dried figs, Red Delicious apples and quince paste – intermingled with aromatic fragrances reminiscent of rosehip syrup and Middle-Eastern spices.
A seductive combination of mandarin and pink grapefruit mingles with the more savoury aromas of roasted nuts, freshly baked almond cookies and a whiff of smoky minerality.

Medium lemon yellow in the glass, this wine is full-bodied and full of tropical fruits, vanilla and yellow peach, all kept fresh with a seam of textured minerality.
From very old vines at 725m, very close to the Spanish border, south of the Douro, grown on granite with high amounts of Silex. Unoaked, with flavours of lime zest, white flowers and minerality.
Fresh nose offering a lovely bouquet of wildflowers. Pleasant, very perfumed and nicely rounded on the palate, this wine should be drunk in its youth in order to enjoy its freshness.
