Loveblock 2012 Pinot Noir, Central Otago
Expanding his horizons, celebrated New Zealand winemaker Kim Crawford now has a Pinot Noir vineyard in Central Otago. Of course known for his iconic Sauvignon Blanc, when he started his new Loveblock winery with his wife Erica, he knew that making New Zealand's other signature wine, Central Otago Pinot Noir was an absolute must. Acquiring a small vineyard in Bendigo called Someone's Darling with good draining soil and low yields, it's in the warmer part of Central Otago which brings good ripeness and layered flavors. After a five day cold soak fermentation included a twice daily hand punch-down followed by 11 months in oak barrels. This Pinot shows the rich fruit character that the region is famous for as well as the deft hand of an already legendary winemaker. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "Winemaker Kim Crawford has turned out a solid effort, ably combining the brash fruit of Central Otago with some measure of finesse. Smoky, campfire-like notes, roasted beets and greens accent black cherry and plum flavors. Itís still a bit crisp and edgy on the finish, but look for the texture to smooth out by the end of 2016."
