About Loveblock 2015 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.


The Wine Advocate scored this 90 points saying "Sourced from the Central Otago subregion of Bendigo, the 2015 Pinot Noir was only partially matured in oak. It's a dark-fruited wine that's reminiscent of cola and plums yet not overly weighty or rich. This medium to full-bodied wine finishes with a fine dusting of velvety tannins, making it approachable now."


and Wine Spectator scored it 92 saying "Rich and creamy, with clove-scented notes of black cherry, plum and licorice that are vibrant and expressive, while intriguing details of forest floor and fresh herb linger, adding another dimension. Shows terrific harmony on the finish. Drink now through 2028."
