"A wonderful expression of an Awatere Sauvignon, the bouquet is intensely fragrant showing nectarine, lime zest, feijoa and herbaceous characters, followed by a succulent palate that is richly fruited and beautifully weighted. This is packed with delectable Sauvignon flavours."

"The Awatere Valley is a cooler subsection of Marlborough, where the wines can sometimes be a bit more leafy or herbal. This wine holds true to that pattern, but balances the celery leaf and tomato stalk character with melon and fig notes. It's verging on full-bodied, even a touch oily in texture, with a long, vibrant finish."

Product Description:

"On the nose herbaceous, orange zest and lime. On the palate clean, crispy and vital with a elegant and structured finish.

All grapes that make Eradus Wines are grown in the Awatere Valley, a sub region of Marlborough with its own unique microclimate. The Awatere Valley is windier, dryer, stonier, cooler and on the whole more extreme than Marlborough's other regions. These conditions create wines with a distinct mineral backbone and crisp, clean acidity.

Marlborough wines are famous for their fruit driven character and Awatere Valley wines are definitely true to this but with the minerality and crisp clean acidity from the Awatere Valley they offer something extra.

Simply put, Awatere Valley wines represent "new world" fruit combined with "old world" minerality and acidity.

In turn our wines are elegant in style and sophisticated in nature.

Our status as a boutique producer allows us to carefully monitor the quality of our wines and we pride ourselves on continuously producing great wine." - Winery
