2017 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir

“This is a tightly wound, laser-focused Pinot that offers lifted aromas of red raspberry, cherry flowers, savory herb, stalk and a streak of mushrooms in hoisin sauce. A long line of savory tannins knit together crunchy fruit on the palate and flow right through to the herb-flecked finish.”

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Pinot Gris – Estate

“From cantaloupe to green apple to lime, this wine is all about bright fruit, along with some floral characters for good measure. The palate is textural, and the acidity is crisp, offering a mouthwatering sensation. It’s screaming to be sipped beside a bowl of Thai curry. Editors’ Choice.”

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Estate

“This wine offers a heady mélange of lychee, peach, pineapple and rose water, with just a touch of tomato leaf. Tangy fruit follows onto the palate, which has a lovely, viscous texture and tingly acidity. It’s a highly likable, mouthwatering drop.”

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

“Delightfully fruited and gorgeously fragrant, the wine shows Gala apple, feijoa, lime peel and sweet basil characters on the nose, followed by a wonderfully flavoursome palate that is filled with youthful fruit intensity. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and lively mouthfeel, finishing long and delectable. From their vineyard in the […]

Great Wine Values: Loveblock Pinot Gris

” when this grape is pruned to reduce yields and ripened fully in a cold climate that preserves natural acidity, the results are spectacularly flavorful. This wine makes a perfect example, practically oozing with lively flavors of cantaloupe and kiwi, passionfruit and pear.”

Reviews: 4 Stars, Michael Cooper, NZ Listener

2014 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Gris

“Probably now in peak form, this distinctive Awatere Valley wine was bottle-aged for several years before its recent release. Medium to full-bodied (12.5% alc/ vol), it has deep, ripely herbal, slightly toasty flavours, which show good complexity, and a finely textured, dry, lingering finish.”
