Erica Crawford came to the wine business through marriage. That’s not to say that nothing about her personal background influences the wines she and her husband Kim make today. In fact, her previous career in the medical and pharmaceutical industries largely shaped Loveblock’s commitment to organic and sustainable farming and winemaking. Her commitment to this is so strong that the farming practiced by Loveblock is entirely closed loop. Close loop farming recycles all nutrients and organic matter back into the soil from which it grew. Through these practices Loveblock produces wines of elegance with more restrained aromatics and more complex texture than is often associated with New Zealand wines.

Aromas of melon, peaches and integrated minerality. On the palate, crisp acidity elevates this wines structure and give balance to the integrated flavors of citrus, stone fruit and flowers.
2017 Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc
Aromas of canned peaches, pineapple, yellow flower, lemon peel and cilantro. Elegant structure, lovely fruit and good acidity.
2016 Loveblock Pinot Noir
Nose of forest floor, and lilac. On the palate flavors of fresh cherry, plum, hints of cocoa. Mouth watering acidity and good fruit structure give this wine the flexibility to be served with a wide variety of food.
