2015 SAUVIGNON BLANC
Marlborough, on the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, has become a world-renowned center for Sauvignon Blanc. Built around an ideal terroir and climate for the classic French grape, Marlborough produces wines with excellent limestone minerality and zesty citrus fruit flavours. Rapuara Springs prides itself on elevating these natural elements while producing their wines using sustainable vineyard practices.
“The 2015 vintage is mouthfilling, with punchy tropical-fruit flavours, a herbaceous undercurrent, and a dry, crisp finish. It’s already quite open and expressive.” –Michael Cooper, Buyer’s Guide to New Zealand Wines
