Pinot Noir 2015
Kim Crawford is New Zealand winemaking royalty. He and his wife Erica sold the business that carries their name, but fans shouldn’t despair because they’re back with a new venture: Loveblock.
Loveblock Pinot Noir 2015 comes from the Crawford family’s estate in Bendigo, Central Otago. This bucolic paradise surrounded by snow-capped mountains, lakes and sheep quietly grazing, has one of the warmest ripening seasons in New Zealand. This Sustainable Winegrowing accredited vineyard planted with Burgundy clone Pinot Noir produces incredible grapes – restrained but with huge complexity. At the Crawford’s organic certified winery these are tenderly turned into Loveblock.
A deeply calming wine layered with wild strawberry, black cherry, tangy raspberry, toasted spices, smoked mushrooms, stewed plums and tart red apple. Tasting this, it’s hard to imagine a more versatile red; hot smoked salmon, classic pasta dishes, truffles, barbeques, tagines, garlic mushrooms, the world is your oyster with this one.
