The Rapaura Springs Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is one of our favourite Marlborough Sauvignon blanc labels that shines on the show circuit with a multitude of gold medals for previous vintages.


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"A splendid rendition of the variety; the intensely aromatic bouquet shows passionfruit, kaffir lime, feijoa and green rockmelon characters, leading to a concentrated palate that offers fabulous fruit purity and vibrancy. The wine is gorgeously fruited and youthfully charming, packed with delicious flavours, finishing impressively long and zesty. At its best: now to 2022."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Offering good value, this Wairau Valley wine is mouthfilling (13.5% alc/vol) and vibrant, with strong tropical-fruit flavours, a herbaceous undercurrent and a finely balanced, long finish."


IWSC 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"A classic cat-pee scent on the gooseberry bush nose belies the class of ripe fruit and firm acidity, which balance well to provide grip on the finish, leaving a well-made impression."

5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is soft and solidly packed with well-concentrated and deep aromas of pungent passionfruit entwined with tropical fruits, fresh and dark herbs and fragrant floral elements. The aromatics are harmoniously integrated and grow in depth and breadth in the glass. Dry to taste and medium full-bodied, the palate is rich and fulsome with broad, mouthfilling flavours of pungent passionfruit, tropical fruits and dark herbs. The fruit has weight an presence on the palate, forming a rounded, deep heart, with fine, lacy acidity underlining the fruit. The wine flows smoothly to an aromatic, near ethereal finish. This is a rich and mouthfilling Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, tropical fruit and herb flavours with plenty of presence and a smooth-flowing palate. Serve with Mediterranean and Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. Fruit from the Wairau Valley, Awatere Valley, Dillons Point and Waihopai, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.9 g/L RS."


92/100 Wine Spectator, June 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Exotic notes of honeysuckle, lanolin and spice pave the way for succulent peach, mango and mandarin orange flavours. Impressively complex, with a supple texture and a long, expressive finish. Drink now."
