Classic Sauvignon Blanc
Our Classic wines capture the most vibrant flavours in each variety. Pure in flavour and 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.
The 2022 growing season began with significant rain, marking the end of three years of drought in Marlborough. A period of warmth in early December produced a welcome and better than average fruit set. In late February we had a couple of significant rains which replenished the soil moisture levels that had been reduced during summer. During the two weeks that followed, we had cool days and nights which meant the acidities remained on the high side. Harvest coincided with the peak of New Zealand’s Omicron outbreak, which put some pressure on staffing. Excellent teamwork meant we were able to harvest our fruit as it was ready, retaining vibrant acidity and concentrated fruit flavour.
Our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was carefully harvested and 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.
