2020 Loveblock Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: This delicious Pinot Noir opens with big aromas of black cherry with hints of mushroom and toasted oak spice. On the palate, flavors of black plum are layered with notes of cherry and sweet berries. Medium bodied with balanced acidity and dry tannins that lead into a powerful finish.
“Fresh and lively, revealing a pretty floral note of violet, with cherry, plum and robust tobacco flavors. Offers a hint of dark chocolate on the firm, muscular finish. Harmonious and powerful. Drink now.” – 93 Points, Wine Spectator
While you may not have heard of Loveblock before, you’ve almost definitely heard of Kim Crawford. And Loveblock is the passion project for husband-and-wife duo Kim and Erica Crawford. After selling the Kim Crawford brand in 2003, the pair began searching for a new vineyard to “live their values”. And so Loveblock was born. With decades of experience, and a passion for organic wines, they began growing ‘low-intervention’ fruit that highlights the best of the New Zealand terroir. And there’s no doubt that their grapes are outstanding quality: not only do they sell their fruit to big-name producers in the country, but they also create award winning bottles year after year. With 90+ Point scores on every vintage, and multiple placements in the Wine Spectator Top 100, this Pinot Noir is a no brainer!
