Rapaura Springs Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 750ml
This wine was created to redefine the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc style. A real crowd pleaser, it is loved for its juicy, ripe flavours and restrained acidity. Each glass is brimming with succulent flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruit and crushed black currant leaf. The fruit flavour is balanced with crisp acidity and a distinct salty minerality, which combine to create a mouth-watering finish.
Add this Sauvignon Blanc to pair with our extensive range of Chicken.
Wine Maker Notes
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 they had a couple of significant rains which replenished the soil moisture levels that had been reduced during summer. During the two weeks that followed, they 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 they were able to harvest the fruit as it was ready, retaining vibrant acidity and concentrated fruit flavour.
The Sauvignon Blanc for this wine is grown in the Dillons Point and Wairau sub-regions, known for expressive aromatics and ripe fruit flavour. Rapaura Srings winery is the only facility in this sub-region, meaning the grapes are immediately pressed after harvest, minimising skin contact. This allows capturing all the expressive aromatics and fruit flavour, without bitter phenolics. After pressing, the juice was settled and then cool-fermented in stainless steel to retain the vibrant flavours and aromas. A variety of yeast strains were used to provide palate weight and complexity.
