Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2015

 Wine Spectator 90 points (Jun 15 2016)
Complex and intense, offering spicy Meyer lemon zest, white flower and melon flavors that are succulent and refreshing, with plenty of floral and mineral details and length on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. -MW
 Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Jul 2016)
Struck flint and tomato stalk on the nose lead into a medium-bodied wine with strong citrus overtones. White grapefruit and green leafy notes linger on the dry finish.

Wine maker notes
New Zealand’s signature varietal tends to be bold and big. We are interested in texture and mouth-feel, rather than enhanced aromatics. To achieve this, a small portion of the wine goes through natural and malolactic fermentation, cutting the sharp edge off the palate. The grapes are from the Loveblock vineyard, consisting of two distinctly different soil types (see Vineyards) and allowing a blend of flavours. We want to make a more constrained wine, the unique aspect of the vineyard allows for minerality and a broad spectrum of flavours.

Food pairing
Sashimi, lemon grass based Asian food, new season asparagus. Serve at 45-50F (7-10C).
