Gentle hints of spicy tobacco, raspberry and savoury notes within this Pinot Noir from New Zealand. This red wine has bright berry-fruit and spicy undertones with silky tannins. The nose and palate are balanced by the true Awatere minerality and a long lingering finish.

Michiel Eradus

Who would have thought that tulips would have been so popular in New Zealand? When Har and Sophie Eradus retired after 20 years selling this peculiar Dutch export to curious Kiwis in New Zealand, they had saved enough money to purchase a vineyard on a small patch of land in Marlborough. Little did they know that they had acquired one of the best terrains for Sauvignon Blanc in an area known locally as the 'Golden Mile'.

No doubt aided by their horticultural background, the first vintage of ‘Eradus Sauvignon Blanc’ was an unexpected hit. With this success, however, came the realisation that winemaking and a leisurely retirement did not go hand in hand.


Michiel to the rescue

With no little risk to his job security, their son Michael quit his 9 to 5 job and decided to take over the operation himself. As a statement of intent, he built the family home smack in the middle of the vineyard and named the following Sauvignon vintage after his eldest daughter, Ana.

Michael quickly set about surrounding himself with a professional team and soon his Ana label was winning awards and renown. This was Sauvignon Blanc, only more so. And it had a peculiar mineral streak that set it apart from the glut of Sauvignons in the area, including those of his rather famous neighbour, Cloudy Bay.


From the Top Shelf

Alongside Michiel’s bestselling Ana Sauvignon Blanc, we are proud to bring you two new wines from this stellar young winemaker; his eponymous single-vineyard Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. The vines are grown in the Awatere Valley, a sub region of Marlborough. It is windier, dryer, stonier and cooler than neighbouring regions, which goes some way to explaining the zest and mineral-streak of his Sauvignon, and the elegance and fragile power of his Pinot.


The Awatere Valley is windier, dryer, stonier, cooler and on the whole more extreme than Marlborough’s other regions. These conditions create wines with a distinct mineral backbone and crisp, clean acidity. Marlborough wines are famous for their fruit driven character and Awatere Valley wines are definitely true to this but with the minerality and crisp clean acidity from the Awatere Valley they offer something extra. Simply put, Awatere Valley wines represent “new world” fruit combined with “old world” minerality and acidity.
