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

White pepper notes mingle with ripe peach, melon and tangerine flavors in this smooth and juicy white, offering details of green tea and lime zest that linger on the finish. Finds harmony and grace on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 25,000 cases imported. — MaryAnne Worbiec, Wine Spectator
