A vibrant, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc, made from grapes grown entirely in New Zealand’s Awatere Valley. Fragrant on the nose with dried florals, white-flesh stone fruit, tropical fruit, soft orange, flinty, mineral flavours finishing long and mouth-watering on the palate. Chill and enjoy now.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: seafood pasta in creamy sauce, tempura vegetables, pan-fried panfish.

Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand’s Awatere Valley - a sub-region of Marlborough. Known for it’s production of softer Sauvignon Blancs with more tropical fruit aromas, this vintage doesn’t disappoint.
A bouquet of lemon, star fruit, white flowers and a hint of cotton candy swirl in the glass, and transform into a crisp lime finish. A real delight for Sauvignon Blanc lovers!
Enjoy now, no need to cellar this one.
Pair with goat cheese salads or cream based pasta dishes.
Tasted September 2020.
L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon coloured wine, dry with racy and vibrant acidity! The first aromas are of gooseberry, herbs and a hint of lime; these are quickly supplemented by a sweet citrusy note of lime, mango, passion fruit with some peach. Tastes are of lime, lime zest, passion fruit with a mineral note; racy and refreshingly tart and tangy. I paired this very successfully with an assortment of little bites; spanakopita, quiche lorraine, quiche florentine, breaded avocado bites and smoked salmon. This Sauvignon Blanc worked its magic on all of them. This would also be a very pleasant wine to sip on its own.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very tasty Sauvignon Blanc showing nice balance. A slight green grass aromas on the nose, but quickly this opens up to show off a nose with a lot more tropical fruit notes like pineapple, and then some white pear and peach, along with a hint of wet stone minerality. A little more weighty on the body than some "typical" SB, but this wine still has vibrant acidity on the palate, more ripe peach and pineapple hints, and a mineral, almost white pepper on the finish. Very nice. Enjoy with ceviche or cold seafood salads with citrus.
How do they make this wine consistently great vintage after vintage? Eradus 2019 is a mouth-watering, medium-bodied, fragrant Sauvignon Blanc with white floral aromas and concentrated citrus flavours, orange peel, tropical fruit notes, fresh cut grass and crushed stone flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews
