2021 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Organic

“Estate-grown and partly (33 per cent) hand-picked in the lower Awatere Valley, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) was fermented in tanks (mostly) and a mix of clay amphorae, concrete eggs and oak barrels.

2021 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Estate

“Bursting with energy, the 2021 Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough) offers excellent concentration of freshly cut pineapple alongside lemon sherbet and peach.

2020 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir

Intense and primary on the nose, with aromas of red cherry stones, and wild raspberries, opening up to more layers of complexity in the glass when given air time… showing stewed rhubarb, cured meat and lilacs. Quite substantial and tasty on the palate with vibrant, juicy red fruit, and firm, […]
