Not only do Eradus make an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc they do a fine job with their Pinot Gris too. The vines are now 15 years old and deliver a wine with great concentration and a real juiciness in a fresh and dry style (less than 1gm rs) with a portion barrel aged to add textural richness.
Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Lifted floral and white peach notes leading to delicious flavours of red apple, pear, white peach with a hint of spice and that Awatere Valley flinty minerality. In Essential Awatere fashion the finish is lively, crisp and lingering. A delicious wine that brings together “new world” fruit and “old world” elegance and minerality.."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"Pristine and delightfully charming, the wine shows apricot, Gala apple, green pear and white floral aromas on the nose, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that's succulent and smooth. Elegant and lingering with bright fruit flavours. At its best: now to 2023."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"The finely balanced 2020 vintage is a top buy. Bright, light lemon/green, it is attractively scented and mouthfilling, with strong, vibrant pear and spice flavours, fresh acidity, and a dry finish. Drink now or cellar."
