Eradus Single Vineyard Marlborough Pinot Gris 2022
91 POINTS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Pristine and elegantly fragrant, showing apricot, honeydew melon, green pear and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate delivers juicy fruit intensity together with supple texture and bright acidity, finishing refreshing and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2025."
- Sam Kim
Eradus are not a one trick pony! Yes, they do make an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc but they do al lovely with their Pinot Gris too. The vines are now 16 years old and deliver a wine with great concentration and a real juiciness in a fresh and dry style with a portion barrel aged to add textural richness. Serious wine for under $20! 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.
Eradus Pinot Gris 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.
