With a palate filled with creamy nougat, peach and vanillin oak, the Rapaura Springs Reserve Chardonnay certainly offers plenty at this price. Uncomplicated yet crammed with flavour and deliciously moreish.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Our Rapaura Springs Reserve Chardonnay is rich and flavourful. Each bottle is bursting with honeysuckle, white peach, nectarine and fresh citrus, all complemented by toasty vanilla and subtle spiced oak characters."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Gorgeously styled and immediately appealing with ripe peach, baked fig, cedar and vanilla characters on the nose. The beautifully rounded palate displays excellent weight and supple mouthfeel, well supported by creamy texture and refreshing acidity, finishing persistent and satisfying. At its best: now to 2024."
4 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine NZ Chardonnay Tasting, August 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Aromas of lovely juicy limes and intelligently integrated vanilla oak nuance on the nose. The palate boasts mouthwateringly succulent acidity surrounded by peacherine and pear characters which combine beautifully with the powerful yet elegant oak. A lovely finish rounds out this chardonnay with poise."
