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.

Blind River is a small sub-region found in Awatere, Marlborough. Arguably the harshest environment of all the valleys, this area is particularly windy and dry. The station that our vineyard is located on was once named Atacama after this driest desert on Earth in Chile. The climate and terroir develops unique and intensified flavours as the grapevines are naturally restricted.

The 2021 vintage was one of the earliest and shortest on record. The growing season was the third in a series of drought vintages, the stress on the vines was compounded by a huge wind run. The combination of some early frost events and a poor flowering resulted in lower yields and smaller bunches than usual. This, combined with the dry conditions, has meant that disease levels are incredibly low this year, resulting in better flavours and pristine fruit with good concentration.

Mussels, fresh seafood, the classic fish and chips and Asian cuisine pair wonderfully with Rohe Sauvignon Blanc.
