Tasting Notes

The grapes are sourced from estate vineyards in Marlborough, two in the lower Awatere valley, and one at the base of the Waihopai valley. All of our estate fruit is batch produced in small amounts and vineyard variability determines the size of the batch. Machine harvested in the cool Marlborough mornings, the batches are fermented separately until dry and a small portion of the juice went through partial malolactic fermentation. Post fermentation the best batches are selected for the Loveblock blend. To add complexity to the wine, very small volumes of Arneis, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer were blended in to the admissible blending proportions.
Colour: Water white with a hint of green and gold.
Aroma: Lifted aromatics with white peach, passionfruit and citrus notes.
Palate: White peach and tropical fruits abound. The lingering finish is underscored with mineral acidity.


Critical Praise

WINE SPECTATOR
90 Points: 2016 Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
“Lemon, lime, passion fruit and grapefruit flavors are intense but glide along elegantly in this light and refreshing white, with touches of lemon thyme on the finish. Drink now”. – MaryAnn Worobiec (March 31, 2017)

WINE ENTHUSIAST
90 Points: 2016 Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)
“Gooseberries and yellow plums mark the nose of this medium-bodied wine. Some grassy-herbal elements add freshness and nuance, while the finish is long, dry and filled with stone fruit. Drink now.”—Joe Czerwinski (March 1, 2017)
