Loveblock Pinot Noir
Wine Spectator 88 points (Jun 15 2014)
An intriguing, smoky, incense-filled aroma and details of chive blossom and orange zest add some charm to the crisp cranberry and tart cherry flavors. Refreshing and compact, showing good intensity on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 1,500 cases imported.-MW
Wine Advocate 87 points (Dec 2014)
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2012 Pinot Noir offers quite a savory / earthy nose with notes of yeast extract, mossy bark and damp earth over red cherry, raspberry and provence herb hints. Medium bodied, some mocha notes come through in the mouth framed with a grainy tannined texture and finishing with good length.
Wine maker notes
Pinot Noir has been called all sorts of names due to its maddeningly fickle nature but when everything comes together, it is said to be juice from heaven. Our Loveblock vineyard in Central Otago is in the warmer area of this extreme grape growing region and tends to have more robust flavours. The five clones planted here each contribute to the spectrum of perfume and flavour, giving the vibrant, fruit driven profile we seek. We pay extra attention to make sure the wine is not over extracted or over oaked.
New Zealand lamb or BBQ spare ribs. Serve at 60°F (15°C).
