Reviews and Ratings

Lots of fresh intensity on the nose and palate of this vibrant New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Notes of fresh cut grass, lemon and chives. Pair with seafood and shellfish. MINE: From New Zealand's Awatere Valley, Eradus XXXX is a pale lemon-green Sauvignon Blanc with a nose of fresh-cut grass, light herbs and tropical notes on the palate. Quite savoury and finishes with a zesty acidity, and perfect for grilled seafood. This vintage was awarded Gold in the Sydney International Wine Competition, 2017. OTHER: Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: A very refreshing Sauv Blanc from New Zealand's famous Marlborough region. Crisp herbal, grassy, tropical fruit & floral notes with canned asparagus. Good balance on a complex palate. Enjoy with Chicken Alfredo or shrimp salad. Tasted Nov. 2017. OTHER: Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: A Sauvignon Blanc with mineral aromas as well as cantaloupe, peach, lychee, orange blossom, freshly cut grass, and a saline quality. On the palate, there are juicy peach and clementine flavours as well as lime. It contains a nice level of acidity. It is crisp, enjoyable, and has a long finish. Tasted November 2017. OTHER: Gold Medal winner (judged with food) at the 2018 Sydney International Wine Competition. I love the intensity and freshness of the Eradus 2017 Sauvignon Blanc. It's got hints of Awatere green to its aromas and flavors, offering notes of crushed tomato stalk, passion fruit and lime, but it balances those with some creaminess on the palate and plenty of lingering citrus on the finish. Drink this medium-bodied wine over the next year or two. Drink Date: 2018-2019. Score - 91 (Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
