A dessert wine of "terrific intensity" for this low price. 93/100 from Bob Campbell! Made from partially shriveled Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough's Awatarere Valley, this sticky offers luscious ripeness and sweetness -- but also beautiful definition and acid vibrancy. Beautifully balanced for strong cheese or medium-sweet desserts, the Eradus Late Harvest is superb value to drink now or keep in the cupboard.

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 Bob Campbell MW

"Sweet, soft and quite mellow dessert wine with honey, tropical fruits, mango and golden queen peach flavours. A lush and appealing wine offering terrific value at this price 5/2/2019." Drink 2019 - 2022

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"This is impressively powerful and opulent, showing dried apricot, Manuka honey, orange marmalade and cake spice aromas on the nose, leading to an unctuously sweet palate that is silky and creamy. The wine offers terrific intensity and viscous texture, nicely balanced by bright acidity. At its best: now to 2020. $17.00. 375ml. www.eraduswines.co.nz. Aug 2018." Drink 2018 - 2020

92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski

"The 2017 Sticky Mickey Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc is hugely sweet (10% alcohol, 204 grams per liter residual sugar), yet it's tart at the same time, with a greenish streak of resinous herb and lime zest running through it for balance. Mango, green papaya and apricot notes lead the way, adding hints of passion fruit, pineapple and caramel along the way to a tangy, sweet-sour finish.."
