Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sku: 055669

 Wine Spectator 89 points (Oct 15 2015)
Focused and smooth-textured, with a core of lemon, green apple and grapefruit flavors, revealing a crisp edge of acidity. A touch of orange blossom and lime zest gives this some added charm. Drink now. 20,000 cases imported. -MW

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).
