Finding quality Chardonnay at this price point is becoming almost impossible but 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 (2022 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, March 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"This is splendidly expressed on the nose with ripe apricot, rockmelon, vanilla and roasted cashew aromas, leading to a silky-smooth palate that's juicy and rounded. Wonderfully composed and delightfully expressed with succulent fruit flavours and creamy texture, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2026."

Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"A very enticing bouquet of complexity and power, aromas of white fleshed stone fruits with a lemon seam, then scents of gun flint and stones, baking spices from barrel highlighting a cashew nut and vanilla combination layering in complexity. Delicious on the palate with a satin-cream texture touching first then contrasting acid line and flavours that mirror the bouquet. Vanilla spice and gunflint, a freshness and youthful energy. A modern expression, well made and lengthy. Best drinking from late 2023 through 2029."

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."
