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
"The wine is fabulously fruited and lifted on the nose showing passionfruit, kiwifruit, peach and lime zest characters. It is equally impressive on the palate with excellent purity and vibrancy backed by fine texture and refreshing acidity, finishing superbly long and delicious. At its best: now to 2022. $17.00. Aug 2019." Drink 2018 - 2021
92/100 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
“The lovely 2019 Sauvignon Blanc combines ripe notes of nectarine and melon with citrus and hints of green tomato. Ultimately, the ripe flavors carry the day in this medium-bodied offering, but there's just enough tension and complexity to keep hings interesting start to finish. Eradus is a pretty reliable source of complex, complete Sauvignon Blanc.”
92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski (2018 vintage)
"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."
