Description

  • Semi-sweet style
  • Honeysuckle
  • Candied citrus
  • Dry finish

Pale gold colour in the glass. Sweet aromas of honeysuckle, candied peel and citrus assail the senses. A sweet fruit explosion opens with honeysuckle, candied citrus peel and lemon notes on the palate and then dries beautifully.

The grapes for this wine were sourced entirely from the family-owned vineyard in Lower Dashwood, where the elevated and windy location challenges the vines. The soil here is predominately composed of a layer of top soil over a tight clay that the vines can't penetrate.

Once at the winery, the grapes were crushed, destemmed and pressed immediately. 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 late October 2018.

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: Dessert, cheese.
