The Oddbins Take

This 2014 vintage Pinot Noir is rich with pure and complex aromas of dark cherry with a hint of violet, blackurrant and clove. On the palate it is rich and complex with juicy cherries and plums, with a lovely mineral streak adding to its charm. The finish is finely balanced with ripe tannins and a silky, elegance.

"Bronze Medal : International Wine & Spirit Competition 2015"

Rapaura Springs was established in 2005, proudly owned and managed by the Neylon and Wiffin Families in Marlborough, New Zealand. They work with the goal of leaving a natural legacy for future generations by enhancing their surrounding environment through sustainable vineyard and winemaking practices. Managed carefully under the strict Sustainable Wine Growing New Zealand standards, the estate employs a philosophy of minimal intervention across the entirety of their winemaking processes.

The namesake spring, depicted on the label, provides the vines with crystal clear, pure water whilst also guiding the family-wineries philosophy. After a six-month journey through a rocky aquifer, at the point where the Wairau River meets earth, the water forms a spring which then weaves its way through the main vineyard.

Growing and sourcing their grapes from across Marlborough’s sub-regions, Rapaura let the land, climate and water of New Zealand do all the hard work before they handcraft their marvellous wines. By taking a step back and leaving the vineyards to tell their own stories, with a slight nudge in the right direction from their experiences winemaking and viticulture teams, all of the wonderful flavours Marlborough has on offer are able to be captured and delivered through the wine. The result? An exceptional series with distinct flavours that reflect the different and iconic regions they come from.

The grapes used for the Rapaura Springs Pinot Noir is grown on low-yielding vines in the Wairau Valley. Aromas of dark cherries and raspberries with a hint of spicy oak carry through to the palate where they’re accompanied by finely balanced, ripe tannins. A red with excellent structure and a smooth and elegant finish.
