Eradus is based in the sauvignon blanc mecca of Marlborough but the grapes were grown on a coastal district called Awatere, known for a leaner, tighter style than what many associate with New Zealand. It's crisp and racy, with electric acidity and an unmistakable note of wet grass, but the tropical fruit comes through. Good stuff and a nice partner for shellfish or salads.
