2020 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir – 95 Points

2019 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir

A perfumed, elegant and beautifully pure nose features essence of red pinot fruit that leads to pretty and refined lighter weight flavors that possess both fine punch and delineation, all wrapped in a dusty and slightly attenuated finish. I would expect that this will unwind substantially with a few years […]
