From day one the mission for Rapaura Springs has been simple, to create an exceptional wine each vintage. So, while a lot of people say great winemaking begins in the vineyard, at Rapaura Springs it begins far earlier, high in the Southern Alps.
It takes months for the pure water from the snow-capped mountains to filter through braided rivers and underground aquifers before making its way to the vineyards. But when it does, it emerges crystal clear at the spring that run through the home vineyard.
The label depicts the rocky aquifer and the pristine springs that connect it to the land. This water is a life force that feeds the vines, while the mountain-fed rivers that shape the land influence the soils that grow the wines.
Pure in flavor and their expression, Rapaura Springs wines reflect their remarkable region. The purity of the springs is a daily reminder to protect the water and land, in order to continue to make every vintage count.Learn About Our Products
