Rimapere means five arrows in Maori and refers to the Rothschild family emblem which symbolises the five brothers who forged this dynasty of entrepreneurs and were the sons of Mayer Amschel Rothschild. The
vineyards are ideally situated in the prestigious Rapaura sites, in the heart of Marlborough. The cool climate of this area is perfect to ripen high quality Sauvignon Blanc and providing them with their typical lemon and
grapefruit flavors together with crisp acidity.
This wine is pale yellow with intense nose of lemon, grapefruit together with mineral notes. It shows great balance and freshness due to a good level of acidity.
So, the first time I tasted Rimapere, meaning 'five arrows' after the emblem of the Rothschild family (Baron Benjamin Rothschild and local entrepreneur Terry Peabody are owners), I nearly fainted from what I call acute smell memory. Like the scent of an old girlfriend's perfume on a passer-by this wine catapulted me back 27 years to the magical aromatics of the pioneer of the region. Matthew Jukes.
