2018 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Organic

“From Kim Crawford’s organic label, a very appealing and atypical Marlborough sauvignon. Aromas of fresh blackcurrant and gooseberry with a hint of funky yeast. A portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barrels. And at least a quarter of the wine went through malolactic ferment. Soft […]

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – Estate

“This wine offers a heady mélange of lychee, peach, pineapple and rose water, with just a touch of tomato leaf. Tangy fruit follows onto the palate, which has a lovely, viscous texture and tingly acidity. It’s a highly likable, mouthwatering drop.”

2018 Loveblock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

“Delightfully fruited and gorgeously fragrant, the wine shows Gala apple, feijoa, lime peel and sweet basil characters on the nose, followed by a wonderfully flavoursome palate that is filled with youthful fruit intensity. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and lively mouthfeel, finishing long and delectable. From their vineyard in the […]
