5 Stars, Top 10 and Best Buy Sauvignon Blanc – CUISINE Magazine (Dec / Jan 2017)
2015 was a vintage with ideal ripening conditions. Cool nights and warm, dry, days allowed the fruit to ripen fully and delivered excellent varietal flavours. Once at the winery, the fruit was gently pressed and the juice fermented at cool temperatures to capture the expressive fruit flavours from the vineyard.
Our Rapaura Springs Sauvignon Blanc has a broad range of fine fruit flavours from across the various Marlborough sub-regions. A quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, it’s sure to impress.
Winemakers tasting note
Our 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has 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.
Try with fresh Fish and Chips or a crisp Caesar salad.
