Awarded New Zealand Winery of the Year 2015, the World’s Best Sauvignon Trophy, and 95 points and Golds galore for its last vintages, Rapaura Springs is a top notch Kiwi winery. The double Gold 2018 is punchy fresh with bright tropical fruit.
"Rich and mouthfilling with passionfruit, tropical fruit and herb flavours with plenty of presence"
Raymond Chan, Wine Critic
Owned by the Neylon family, Rapaura Springs has an astonishing track record of Trophies and top points for its wines. The family started their farming career with mussels and apples but found vines much more rewarding. They have vineyards throughout the best sites in Marlborough, and also work with a handful of skilled and loyal growers to gain access to the finest fruit. To top it off, they asked former IWC White Winemaker of the Year to come on board. The result is knock-out wines like this, described by Wine Spectator as “Lip-smacking and juicy, offering mango, lemon and pineapple accents that are bold and energetic.” It’s crafted from grapes taken from premium Wairau, Waihopai and Dillons Point. Enjoy chilled with spicy seafood or solo.

queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
