Eradus Pinot Gris 2021 750ml
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.
VINE AGE: 15 years old
WINEMAKING: Stainless Steel and barrel ferment
SOIL TYPE: Alluvial / River Stone
RESIDUAL SUGAR: <1g/l T.A: 7.7 PH: 3.3
THE EXPERIENCE: 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.
