Rapaura Springs Reserve Rose 2020

Vibrantly pink, with inviting aromas of strawberries and cream. Each glass is loaded with fresh summer berries and stone fruit, with a delightfully refreshing finish. Chill and enjoy!

94 Points / 5 Stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "This is super tasty and hugely appealing; the beautifully lifted bouquet shows watermelon, rockmelon, fig and white floral aromas, followed by an elegant yet concentrated palate that's succulent and fleshy. Gorgeously expressed and immensely enjoyable. At its best: now to 2022."

4 Stars, Winestate Magazine 2020

Perfect weather over flowering in the spring of 2019 produced unprecedented berry numbers. Fortunately, the driest summer on record then suppressed the berry growth. By harvest time, berry size was small to moderate, which has given the wines substantial structure. Late summer brought Marlborough’s trademark cooler nights, that are so important to our aromatic qualities and retention of acidity. The introduction of a nationwide lockdown to slow the spread of COVID-19 coincided with the beginning of our harvest. Our vineyard and winery teams moved incredibly fast to adhere to the very strict distancing and hygiene protocols to allow us to continue to operate. After harvesting, selected parcels
of fruit were allowed extended skin contact for 12 hours, for colour and flavour, before being gently pressed. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to capture all the vibrant fruit flavours and aroma. This wine is made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
