Classic Sauvignon Blanc
Our Classic wines capture the most vibrant flavours in each variety. Pure in flavour and their expression, our wines reflect the best of Marlborough.
Adorning every label on every bottle of Rapaura Springs wine is a simple symbol – a circle of rocks that signify the pure spring in our home vineyard in the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand. Our label and our name represent our intimate connection to the pristine waters that collect high in the Southern Alps and are gradually filtered beneath the region’s braided rivers, refreshing the deep underground aquifers that feed our vines, and bubble up in our own Rapaura Springs. The purity of our springs influences how we craft our wine and tend our vineyards.
Pure and vibrant with layers of passionfruit, tropical fruit and zesty citrus. Juicy fruit flavours and crisp acidity combine to deliver a mouth-watering finish. Capturing all the trademark sub-regional flavours of Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc is sure to impress.
2021 was a unique vintage, one of the earliest and shortest on record. The growing season was the third in a series of drought vintages, the stress on the vines was compounded by a huge wind run. The combination of some early frost events and a poor flowering left lower yields and smaller bunches than usual. This, combined with the dry conditions, has meant that disease levels are incredibly low this year, resulting in better flavours and pristine fruit with good concentration, good tannin and good colour.
We’re thrilled with the concentration and intensity of flavour in our 2021 wines, this vintage will be one to remember. Our Sauvignon Blanc was carefully harvested, then taken straight to our winery located in the lower-Wairau valley. The fruit was gently pressed, and batch fermented, using a variety of yeast strains at cool temperatures to capture the vibrant fruit flavours and aromatics from our Marlborough vineyards.
