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.
