2018 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Estate

“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.”

2017 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir
