Mario Cagnetta rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Freshness, fragrance and exotic are the main characteristics of this wine from Marlborough, New Zealand. As many other Sauvignon Blanc from this country, this wine maintains its promise and reveals as soon as you pour into the glass: crystal clear in limpidity, with a straw yellow colour and moderately consistent in fluidity, you can immediately recognize that it comes from New Zealand. The originality derives mainly from the olfactory examination where, along with the main characteristics of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, herbaceous, vegetal and fruity flavours with a remarkable note of guava and lime. Many other tropical notes make it very refreshing and particularly recommended for an aperitif or for a Thai dinner. During the olfactory examination it reveals the main characteristics of the Sauvignon Blanc: good intensity and complexity and a fine quality are present combined with many aromatic notes typical from this grape. By tasting this wine, it is obvious that we are going to have more hardness than softness with a predominance of the acids, very well balanced by the alcohol counterpart of (13%). Balanced for this particular kind of wine, intense and moderately persistent in the mouth, definitely a quality wine with good body and ready to drink. Highly recommended for white wine lovers maybe not too much attached to the oaky, barrique flavours, Eradus is a good companion especially for hot summer nights on a patio when you probably are looking for something very fresh and easy going that brings your mind to a tropical place.
Very well priced at only $17.00 per bottle.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
