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. There’s a subtle green background note of capsicum and gooseberry displaying the variety’s spectrum of flavors. It has a powerful core and sinew on the long, fragrant finish.” […]

2020 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Organic

5 Stars / 98 Points

“Certified organic, this is a top vintage of this single-vineyard, Awatere Valley wine. Showing excellent complexity (one-third of the blend was aged in a mix of clay amphorae, barrels and concrete eggs), it is mouthfilling, fleshy, sweet-fruited and dry, with concentrated, ripely herbaceous flavours and […]

A grape by any other name

By Mark Henderson

In life you might question someone who goes by an alias, but in the world of grape varieties this is all very commonplace.

Pinot Gris is but one example.

Whether labelled as pinot grigio in Italy, grauburgunder and rulander in Germany and Austria (the former generally drier, the latter more often […]

Loveblock Pinot Gris 2020

A Marlborough wine, Loveblock – a personal brand, and return, from winemaker Kim Crawford. Palest green-yellow in the glass, with delicious aromas of wild fennel, golden apple, cardamom and pear. Crisply dry, light to medium bodied, with a lively line of acidity. Fresh ginger, lychee, greengage, basil, and rockmelon flavours […]

2019 Pinot Gris

“Tighter, crisper and leaner than many New Zealand Pinot Gris by virtue of its extreme, elevated coastal site. Loveblock’s 2019 Pinot Gris still shows some honeyed richness on its medium-bodied palate, providing welcome relief to the tart, mixed-citrus aromas and flavors. Give it another year in the cellar, and be rewarded with greater […]

Loveblock, Pinot Gris, Marlborough, New Zealand 2020

Appealing musky pear-drop aromas lead on to a just-dry palate of juicy tinned peaches and pears. The creamy, quite weighty mouthfeel is nicely balanced by flinty mineral acidity, giving a gentle but succulent wine that would be delicious with roast pork. […]

2020 Loveblock Marlborough Pinot Gris (Biogro/Organic)

“Plush, fresh, elegant and varietal. A core of fruits showcasing white peach, red and yellow apples, pear and white spice. On the palate – a coarse silk texture precedes flavours of white fleshed orchard fruits, citrus peel and leesy spice layers. Nice acid line […]
