Har and Sophie Eradus, and their two kids, were originally in the flower business in Holland but in 1982 they moved to NZ. After 20 years of dealing with bunches of flowers it was time to get their hands on bunches of another kind, grapes!
In 2004 Hanna and Michiel Eradus took over the reigns. When cleaning out an old shed at the winery one day they came across an old pot belly door with an embossed logo. Wiping it down, it revealed the letters “H, S and E” – Har and Sophie Eradus maybe? Spooky!
The Sticky Mickey is the dessert wine (aka sticky!) using some of their prized Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc grapes, barrel aged for 12 months and in their own words – “One of the most fun wines we have ever made”
Scoring 93/100 and a Top Rank award by Bob Campbell in The Real Review, Bob said “Sweet, soft and quite mellow dessert wine with honey, tropical fruits, mango and golden queen peach flavours. A lush and appealing wine offering terrific value at this price.”
