SINGLE VINEYARD MAGIC. 4.5 STARS & 91/100
Eradus are true pioneers of grape growing in Marlborough's Awatere Valley. Their vines grow on a slender terrace and single vineyard 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. These elements create wines of elegance and minerality with a lively and lingering finish. We let the untameable terroir of the Awatere Valley express itself through the vines, grapes and ultimately our wines.
This 2022 Pinot Gris is luscious & full. 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. 13.5% ABV.
