FIVE STARS, 96/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Tour de force Sauvignon from a top flight producer. This is a really aromatic, punchy wine with layers of crisp exotic flavours and to die for persistence. It's everything you can ask for in premium Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and an absolute credit to the winemaking and viticultural teams at Rapaura Springs.
Amazing value here with the Advintage Advantage.
Sam Kim writes "Offering impressive fruit purity and power, it's instantly appealing with green rockmelon, passionfruit, kiwifruit and kaffir lime notes on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate delivering excellent weight and juicy fruit intensity. Wonderfully fruited and hugely appealing."
The winery writes "This wine was created to redefine the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc style. A real crowd pleaser, it is loved for its juicy, ripe flavours and restrained acidity. Each glass is brimming with succulent flavours of passionfruit, tropical fruit and crushed black currant leaf. The fruit flavour is balanced with crisp acidity and a distinct salty minerality, which combine to create a mouth-watering finish."
