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 (2021 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 & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"This is delectably styled and expressed with golden stone fruit, rockmelon, nougat, brioche and roasted hazelnut aromas on the nose, followed by a wonderfully generous palate offering ripe fruit intensity together with seductive oak nuances, leading to a lengthy creamy finish. At its best: now to 2026."


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Aromas and flavours of ripe orchard fruits and barrel spices, there’s a fine toasty quality and core of complexity. Weighty on the palate with a satin-cream texture leading to flavours of apple and peach, some baked custard and tropical fruit moments. Acidity balanced the wine perfectly and with a layer of fine wood and fruit tannins the structure and mouthfeel are excellent. Well made and ready for drinking from late 2021 through 2026."

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."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
