Love Block Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Perched right on top of the hills overlooking Marlborough's Awatere Valley, our Loveblock is far removed from the agricultural bustle in the valley below. From here you can almost see the end of the planet, the peace lifts you above your troubles. We are charged with creating the best wine we can to express this extraordinary place with its unique aspect. We follow our deeply held belief of ethical farming which allows the wine to show its true and naked terroir.
This wine has a pale straw color with a hint of green and lifted aromatics with pineapple, passionfruit and intense citrus blossom. Elegant palate with white peach, underscored with tropical fruits and linear acidity. It has a creamy mouthfeel and texture due to Loveblock’s organic winegrowing practices.
Bremer's May 2018 Staff Pick
This month's staff pick has been chosen by Taylor, a member of the fifth generation of Bremers to work at the store. Like so many of us, Taylor often chooses a bottle of wine by the label artwork and once he saw the illustration on Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc, he knew he needed to give it a try. (The 92 point rating from Wine Enthusiast certainly didn't hurt either). On his first sip, he knew he had made a good decision... with flavors of cantaloupe and crushed sweet meadow grass and balanced acidity this Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect pick to enjoy all summer long.
Wine EnthusiastLoveblock is the label of Erica and Kim Crawford, former owners of one of New Zealand's most famous labels. Their latest Sauvignon Blanc from organically grown fruit displays subtlety and complexity. The nose is a soft synthesis of peach, cantaloupe, lemon-lime, watermelon rind and warm stone minerality, while the palate is all about texture. It's tight, structured and chalky, with prickly acidity and a long citrus and mineral finish. Drink now with an array of seafood and cold salad dishes.
Wine SpectatorDistinctive, with a fresh, green herbal overtone and plenty of notes of lemongrass, saline and celery leaf to the core of citrus flavors. Smooth, crisp and juicy. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.
