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 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.”

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 […]

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.”

Marlborough savvy has largely become a bulk commodity, but there are […]
