The Oddbins Take

It must be terribly depressing to be one of these people that have entered into folklore for turning down a golden opportunity. Like the A&R guy that passed on the Beatles in 62 because he thought guitar groups were on the way out. For the next 55 years he had to endure utter bewilderment anytime it was brought up; "sorry, the Beatles? The Beatles, with John Lennon & Paul McCartney? You turned down the Beatles? You're aware that they became pretty successful? I mean, I love Hey Jude, one of my favourites! You probably regret that, ay?"


Rapaura Springs' finest Sauvignon vineyard has a similar tale of early rejection, "this land is only good for raising bulls," said the previous owner of the Bull Paddock. His loss was Rapaura Springs' gain; the silt rich soil and north facing aspect delivers a Sauvignon Blanc of exceptional quality, with succulent passionfruit, guava and citrus flavours, underscored by delicate jalapeño and fresh herbal elements. Layers of concentrated tropical fruit and citrus flavours are complemented by an attractive, flinty or mineral aspect on the full, rich palate.
