Winemaker's Notes

New Zealand's signature varietal tends to be bold and big. This wine focuses on texture rather than enhanced aromatics. In order to take some of the sharp edge off the palate, a small portion of the wine goes through natural and malolactic fermentation.

Critical Acclaim

"The new project of Erica and Kim Crawford (yes, the Kim Crawford), Loveblock is situated on a spectacular windswept promontory overlooking the sea. Passion fruit, vibrant and pure, marks the nose, while the plump palate reveals hints of gooseberry that linger through the extended finish."
90 Points

"This white features grapefruit and grapefruit zest notes up front, with lemonade, green apple and dried apricot accents. Finishes with bright acidity, along with a lingering touch of white flowers. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported. "

A really tasty effort from winemaker Kim Crawford and his wife Erica, the 2013 Loveblod is bright and sassy on the palate, with mineral and dried citrus flavors; crisp in the finish.
