Back to Back Double Golds for Marlborough Winery

96 Points Rapaura Springs Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013 and Back to Back Double Gold’s.

Marlborough Winery Rapaura Springs is justifiably proud of its recent Double Gold award and 96 point rating at the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Challenge 2014.

One of only a handful of wines from New Zealand to achieve this award, it’s made all the better by the fact we received the same recognition from the esteemed panel of judges last year. Both the 2013 and 2012 vintage Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wines have been awarded Double Gold medals. Talk about consistent!

Owner Brendan Neylon praises “a great team effort and an unwavering focus on quality, from the vineyard to the winery”.

The San Francisco International Wine Competition is the largest and most respected international competition in the United States.

The 2013 vintage also scored Gold at this year’s New Zealand International Wine Show.

Rapaura Springs, delivering consistently excellent wines. Available nationally through good retailers, RRP $16.99.
