Har and Sophie Eradus emigrated from Holland to New Zealand in 1982, and decided to make wine on their retirement, some 20 years later. They looked around, found and bought what was to become the Eradus vineyard. On the door of an old ‘pot belly’ stove in a shed on the grounds was an embossed emblem with the letter H, S and E – Har and Sophie Eradus. This emblem is now the logo on every bottle of Eradus wine.
Today there are twelve hectares of mainly Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vineyards, the most impressive of which are planted on undulating, stony terraces along the Awatere river valley. Closer to the ocean than much of the Marlborough wine region, the Awatere’s warm days, cool nights and dry, sunny climate are key to the luminous flavour intensity, elegant minerality and fresh acidities of Eradus’ distinctive wines. The Eradus estate is now run by son Michiel, whose affable, easy-going demeanour belies a fierce perfectionist focused on pushing every boundary in pursuit of quality and balance – the Eradus mantra.
