Relatively unique in Marlborough, the grapes for this wine were sourced entirely from the family-owned Hillside vineyard in Lower Dashwood, where the elevated and windy location challenges the vines. Dependent on vigour, the vines were cane pruned to either one or two canes and trained to vertical shoot position. The warm spring of 2019 brought on a quick flowering of 3 days. The grapes were green thinned at veraison to ensure even ripening in the autumn. Due to the challenging location and pruning of the vines, yields were low when harvested in March 2020.

Once at the winery, the grapes were crushed, destemmed, must chilled and pressed. Half of the juice was in contact with the skins for approximately 6 hours. The juice was then floated, warmed and inoculated with an aromatic yeast. A cool fermentation followed and when the wine was deemed in balance (in residual sugar, alcohol and acidity) the ferment was stopped. The wine was then stabilised, filtered and bottled in June 2020.

Perched on top of the hills overlooking Marlborough's Awatere Valley, the 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. Winemkaers are charged with creating the best wine they can to express this extraordinary place and its unique aspect. They follow their deeply held belief of low intervention farming, which allows the wine to show its true and naked terroir. Loveblock is their heart and soul.

Food Pairing: The perfect accompaniment to the spice and subtle sweetness of Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, or a funky cheese.
