2021 Loveblock Marlborough TEE Sauvignon Blanc

“An unusually golden hue and a nose of baked apple mark this out as an unusual Sauvignon Blanc. Green tea powder was used in place of sulphur dioxide as an antioxidative and has created an unusually creamy, mellow but sprightly fresh Sauvignon Blanc. A different but rather delicious take,” 93 […]

2021 Loveblock Marlborough Pinot Gris

Fragrant nose with aromas of fruit pastille mixed with pear and a wisp of herb. Perfumed without overt sweetness. Supple and rounded palate, yet an appealing crispness too which keeps this fresh and lively. Spiced pears fill the palate, lime cordial notes with aeration. Very true to the grape, showing a […]

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. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a distinctive wine, medium to full-bodied, with very good intensity of vigorous, […]
