Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2013 Marlborough
A bouquet beginning to show bottle-development aromas with a mix of fresh grapefruit and some pea/asparagus tones then softer white peach and gentle tropical layers; the vegetal bell-pepper/hay/grass tones typical of the region still show though quiet in nature. On the palate – crisp, dry and still quite fruity with flavours of peach, lemon and grapefruit laced with a green vegetal note; plenty of acidity – this wine will age for some time to come. Balanced and well made; drink now and through 2022.
Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Marlborough
Youthful, fruity, quite bold and very expressive bouquet with aromas of white peach, lemon and green apple, loads of fresh herb with a suggestion of basil, quite steely and with a silk-like texture/shape. On the palate – quite electric and very vibrant with high acidity then flavours of pineapple and tropical fruits then green apple and lemon, steely, youthful, crisp and vibrant; balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2025.
