2019 Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc – 94 Points

Instantly appealing bouquet with aromas and flavours of baked pineapple and red apple, gooseberry and golden kiwifruit, fresh basil and wet riverstone mineral moments.  Vibrant on the palate with a salty refreshing acid line and flavours of pure lime and tropical fruits. Delicious and best enjoyed from today and through 2023.
