Overview

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc

Its Origins

Arriving from Holland in 1982; Har, Sophie, and the Eradus kids settled in Auckland. After a 20 year stint in the flower industry the decision was made to sell up and search NZ for a semi-retirement project. A vineyard in the stunning Awatere Valley, Marlborough, a valley that was later going to become renowned for producing some of New Zealand’s best Sauvignon Blanc. Upon development, completion and launching the brand with the “Eradus Sauvignon Blanc 2002″, Har and Sophie realised a vineyard and wine label was a proposition far from semi-retirement. In 2004, Hanna and Michiel Eradus took over the reigns.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"This fabulous Awatere sauvignon shows fragrant aromas of passionfruit, kaffir lime, lemon peel and jasmine on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is pristine and delicious. The wine offers classic varietal purity backed by refreshing acidity, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2021. $17.00. www.eraduswines.co.nz. Aug 2018." Drink 2018 - 2021

4 Stars Michael Cooper

"The 2018 vintage (4*) is aromatic and strongly varietal. Bright, light lemon/green, it is freshly herbaceous, with melon, lime and green-capsicum flavours, crisp and punchy, and some tropical fruit notes. A forthright young wine, it offers good value."

92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

"The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc shows no signs of dilution. It's all Awatere Valley fruit, mostly from the estate, with a couple of blocks of purchased fruit from slightly inland. Grassy and leafy notes accent the ripe nectarine fruit on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is concentrated and round, with pink grapefruit notes that linger harmoniously on the finish."
