"Eradus continues a successful run with this year's Sauvignon Blanc. As usual, it's fairly pungent and herbal upfront, but then delivers waves of passion fruit. It's concentrated and fairly full-bodied for a Sauvignon, with a lingering finish." 91 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Great grapes should make great wine and therefore our vineyard is where we do much of our winemaking. Our vines are located in the Awatere Valley, a Marlborough sub region with its own extreme microclimate. The wines from this region can be described as having a lovely mineral backbone, fresh clean crisp and zingy acidity. These characters, when combined with riper fruit elements, has the potential to make fantastic wines. Our winemaking and viticulture philosophy is based around the concept of "balance", and when this is achieved the result speaks for itself. " -Winemaker

"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. Apart from laying the foundations for a great wine company, Har and Sophie also discovered the Eradus logo. When cleaning up the old shed, Sophie found an old "pot belly" door with an embossed logo. Looking carefully, you can make out an "H", "S" and "E"... Har and Sophie Eradus. It was meant to be!" -Winery

This wine was also scored 89 Points by the Wine Advocate and 87 Points by the Wine Spectator.
