Toast Patio Season With These Top Tasting Sauvignon Blancs

Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor profile tends toward racy, energetic ebullience making it ideal for warm-weather sipping. France’s Loire and Bordeaux regions are masters of the varietal, but in past decades regions such as New Zealand, California, and Chile have jumped into the game, making their own zesty expressions.

A tasty look at sav blancs

Mid-January. Depending on where you are as you read this, you may be basking in the glow of summer and dreaming of a cool sav blanc, the condensation forming beads as it trickles down the bottle.

Of course, writing this ahead of publication is fraught with the risk that it could […]

2020 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – An elegant rendition of the variety with textural mouthfeel and refinement; the beautifully lifted bouquet shows Granny Smith apple, apricot, fresh herb and lemon peel aromas with a hint of gun smoke. It’s focused and concentrated on the palate, delivering excellent vibrancy together with […]

Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2020, MarlboroughBright, pale straw-yellow, lighter watery on the rim. The nose is well-packed with exotic fruit aromas of pineapple, green guava along with cut grass and aromatic white spice dusting.

Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020 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 […]

2020 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

“(Organic, vegan) – Distinctive, almost exotic, pure, ripe and varietal with aromas of lemons and grapefruit, white spice and wild flowers, apple and sweet herbs. Silky texture and a core of fruit gave way to the youthful refreshing line of acidity, soft herb and flavours of forest flowers, mineral and spices. […]

91 Points, Wine Align – 2019 Loveblock Marlborough ORANGE Sauvignon Blanc (Now Known As 2019 Loveblock Marlborough TEE Sauvignon Blanc)

David Lawrason – 92 PointsThis deceptively yellow in colour, not orange as advertised. But is “no sulphur” and infused with green tea to prevent oxidation, which is very creative. It does have a slightly stemmy nose […]

2019 Loveblock TEE Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

An intriguing take on the Marlborough Sauvignon style. This wine has green tea added as an alternative antioxidant to sulphur dioxide (SO2). Quite shy aromas of peach and a hint of feijoa. On the palate there are soft acids and complex, multi-layered flavours of feijoa, […]
