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 […]

SAVVY LOVE
“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.

2014 Loveblock Marlborough Sweet Moscato – Sustainable

Wines for Cool Weather
“From Kim and Erica Crawford’s Marlborough-based label, an unusual and memorable Awatere Sauv. Smells like elderflower, green capsicum and gooseberry. In the mouth, it has crisp acidity and flavours of fresh lime juice, capsicum and a hint of florals and tropical lychee. Great with seafood.”
