2019 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

“Estate-grown in the lower Awatere Valley, this punchy, partly barrel-fermented wine is fresh and weighty, with good intensity of ripe, tropical fruit flavours, a touch of complexity, and a dry, appetisingly crisp finish.”

2019 Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir

“Delicious young, this single-vineyard red was hand-picked at Bendigo and partly (50%) barrel-aged. Bright ruby, it is perfumed and supple, with vibrant, ripe, sweet-fruit flavours to the fore, in a very charming style.”

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Gewurztraminer

“Wow. A wine with huge personality. Smells like marmalade, clover honey and Turkish Delight. Opens up on the palate rich, complex and medium sweet, with all those flavours plus preserved ginger and a lengthy aftertaste.”
