Winemaker Notes

Bright crimson. Aromas of big, ripe black cherry with hints of mushroom and toasty oak spice peeking out behind rich fruit. On the palate, fleshy black plum, with layers of cherry and sweet berries that play on the palate and dance with hints of violet and savory notes.

Dry tannins and hints of cigar make this a versatile wine to pair with turkey, salmon, lamb, and beef.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator

Fresh and lively, revealing a pretty floral note of violet, with cherry, plum and robust tobacco flavors. Offers a hint of dark chocolate on the firm, muscular finish. Harmonious and powerful.

Loveblock Who is Loveblock? Winery Video

Loveblock was forged from a love affair with a view for veteran vintners Erica and Kim Crawford. Perched on top of the hills overlooking Marlborough's Awatere Valley, the Loveblock is far removed from the agricultural bustle in the valley below. 

They are charged with creating the best wine they can to express this extraordinary place, following a deeply held belief in integrated, sustainable farming to allow the wine to express its true and naked terroir.

Grown and made with love and care.

Family Owned. Estate Grown. Sustainably Farmed.

Home to the globe’s most southerly vineyards, which are cultivated below the 45th parallel, Central Otago is a true one-of-a-kind wine growing region, but not only because of its extreme location.

Central Otago is more dependent on one single variety than any other region in New Zealand—and it isn’t Sauvignon blanc. They don’t even make Sauvignon blanc there.

Pinot Noir claims nearly 75% of the region’s vineyards with Pinot Gris coming in a far second place and Riesling behind it. This is also New Zealand’s only wine region with a continental climate, giving it more diurnal and seasonal temperature shifts than any other.

The subregion of Bannockburn has enjoyed the most success historically but the area’s exceptional growth has moved to the promising regions of Cromwell/Bendigo and Alexandra districts. Central Otago is known for its fruity and full-bodied Pinot noir. With the freedom to experiment here, growers and winemakers are easily exhibiting the area’s great potential.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
