Anything but blanc looks
2017 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Price: $22
Rating: Very good

“A combo of zesty, fresh notes aligned with sweeter tropical fruit, lemon and smoke influences. Green capsicum and lemon lead the brightly crisp bone-dry palate, which fattens up and builds in weight with aeration.

Plays in an appealingly tangy sweet and sour spectrum with a nicely herb-accented close.”

2014 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Gris – Sustainable
“Aromatic, exotic and fruity with flavours of peach, apple, a little grapefruit and yellow rose. Dry on the palate with a vibrant and lightly spiced texture with a hint of white pepper then a return to yellow stone fruit, citrus and apple flavours. Crisp, dry finish. Drink now and […]

2016 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir – Sustainable & Vegan Friendly
“Moderately intense, luscious pinot noir with ripe plum, dark berry, spice, anise, and subtle nutty oak flavours. Seductively sweet fruit supported by gentle tannins. Accessible now but no rush. (Screwcap). Ageing: now to 2023. Food: Waikato lamb, eggplant, kumara, mustard and whey.”

2015 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir – Sustainable
“Rich and creamy, with clove-scented notes of black cherry, plum and licorice that are vibrant and expressive, while intriguing details of forest floor and fresh herb linger, adding another dimension. Shows terrific harmony on the finish. Drink now through 2028.—M.W.”

2014 Loveblock Marlborough Gewurztraminer – Organic
“A subtle and graceful just off-dry style from Kim and Erica Crawford’s largely organic label. Grown in the Awatere Valley, it has aromas of lychee fruit and madarin. In the mouth, it has a musky palate of guava, lychee, rosewater and mandarin. A lengthy finish with a hint of sweetness.”

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Pinot Gris – Organic & Vegan Friendly
“Enticing varietal signature of Gris with fleshy and juicy white peach, pear and yellow apple aromas. Noticeable layer of white pepper spice and a light lees layer suggesting ginger and barley-sugar. Just dry on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose, a light white spice […]

Reviews: Kirsten Rødsgaard-Mathiesen, NZ House & Garden

“New vintages of sauvignon blanc are usually released in late autumn and winter, although a number of boutique wineries hold onto them and have only just recently released last year’s vintage. Loveblock is one of those wineries. Owned by well-known winemaker Kim Crawford and his wife Erica, it’s a boutique winery in Marlborough’s Awatere […]

2014 Loveblock Marlborough Sweet Moscato – Sustainable
“Fragrant, floral, fruity and very appealing bouquet. Blossoms, spun sugar, citrus and orange peel aromas. Sweet as it hits the palate, but immediately contrasted by acidity, texture and flavour. Flavours from the nose and palate persist with some warmth and freshness adding to the length and finish. Drink now […]
