Refined aromas and flavours of passionfruit and lemon grass align with hints of gooseberry and grapefruit. The palate is textured with a dry finish. This Sauvignon Blanc reflects the deep gravel of the vineyards and is a textural, complex wine.
The sweet, lifted aroma of proving bread appeals on the nose along with pleasant notes of white stone fruit, with spice and citrus adding to this sensory delight. Sweet Danish pastry and spicy pear tart emerge out of the succulent and sweetly fruited palate. Generous mineral flavours compliment the rich and full weight. Ginger and lemon zest add a pleasing zing to the finish.
A floral note of sweetpea develops to ripe pineapple and a touch of spice on the nose. Rock melon and gooseberry fruits on the palate are complimented by a pleasing fleshy texture and nicely integrated soft acidity. Good weight and length.
Classic Marlborough pungency and varietal definition. Aromas of white currants, blackcurrants, nettles, and ripe tropical notes including passionfruit. A full palate, which finishes with fresh acidity. Currant and mineral characters linger for minutes.
This vibrant, aromatic wine comes from the Awatere Valley, south of the better-known Wairau Plains. Michiel Eradus, owner/winemaker, believes the prolonged ripening period here is key to the wines' flavour intensity. Eradus Sauvignon is herbaceous and mineral with a long, rich finish.
Colourfully expressive nose with notes of lemon, white flowers and a wee bit of minerality. Crisp yet well structured acidity balanced with a gorgeous purity of white ripe fruit and a gentle honeysuckle hint on the finish.
Delicate aromatics reminiscent of beeswax raspberry, orange blossom and green tea, with some gentle stone-like mineral tones. Elegant, silky palate with low alcohol making the wine light on its feet, and great tension between sugar and acidity. Rich and pure flavours of orange citrus and red summer fruit compote along with crème anglaise carry through into a very long, stony, almost crunchy, mineral finish. Retained carbon dioxide from fermentation adds liveliness.
