Eradus Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc has firmly re-established itself as a star Sauvignon at Vino Fino and this new release continues that tradition. It's a delicious, softly juicy Sauvignon and at this price, it is unbelievable value.
Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"Our vines grow on a slender terrace at the edge of the Awatere River, with a unique microclimate and soil structure. Influenced by a fault line, a river, and the power of the nearby Pacific Ocean, our land is stony, dry, windy and cool, elements that create wines of elegance, minerality with a lively and lingering finish. We let the untameable terroir of the Awatere Valley express itself through our vines, grapes and ultimately wines.
Succulent fruit balanced by lovely, subtle and flinty minerality. This is a seductively powerful and moreish wine yet understated by its elegance. The nose is all about floral and nettle notes. 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."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2022 (2022 Vintage)
"Pristine and fabulously aromatic with passionfruit, feijoa, kaffir lime and lemon peel aromas, it's concentrated and gorgeously flavoursome on the palate offering excellent fruit purity and power. At its best: now to 2025."
