Dark plum, black cherry and black olive tapenade with complexing mushroom and fresh sage combined with vanilla pod oak. The palate is rich in dark fruits, fresh strawberries and cassis. The tannins are poised and silky and finishes with notes of dried herbs and cedar.

Rapaura Springs (pronounced Ra-para) is a unique oasis in the dry Marlborough landscape with natural underground springs providing a life source for the vines. This pure water enables the vineyards to produce outstanding fruit with minimal intervention. The logo represents springs water flowing from their stony aquifer.

The Pinot Noir grapes used in this wine were sourced from select premium vineyards within the Marlborough region. Small parcels of quality fruit were harvested over a number of days from four individual vineyards in four separate sub-regions of Marlborough. Fruit was picked when optimum levels of ripeness and flavour were achieved.

A combination of both traditional and New World winemaking was used in the making of this Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir. Once the picking decisions were made the wine undertook a period of cold soaking. The freshly pressed juice was then carefully warmed and underwent natural fermentation with indigenous yeast, to build complexity in the wine. Plunging of the cap allowed for gentle tannin extraction and colour development. Some parcels were allowed to further mature before pressing off into a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques and stainless steel for 15 months.

Enjoy with Grilled Venison Medallions and Mushroom and Tomato Bordelaise sauce or a Beetroot and Goats Cheese Tart.
