Rapaura Springs 2013 Sauvignon and 2012 Releases

11-Sep-2013
The Rapaura Springs brand of the Neylon and Wiffin families, has made a strong showing with its releases since 2008. I see Rapaura Springs as a label to watch as it strengthens its position the premium category following an auspicious start in the value stakes. My review of wines sent by winemaker Michael Bann in April last year (click here to see the review) showed some classy Sauvignon Blancs, a first-up Marlborough Verdelho and good Pinot Noirs. The wines sent in August confirmed the company’s strength with Sauvignon Blanc and indicated star potential with Chardonnay (click here to see). Here are my reviews of two 2013 Sauvignon Blancs, the second release of Verdelho and the progressing Pinot Noirs. www.rapaurasprings.co.nz
