Pale straw with a hint of green and gold in appearance. Complex and elegant Sauvignon Blanc bouquet, with pineapple, guava and sweet meadow grass aromas. Rounded and textured, with pineapple, tropical fruit and a sweet basil edge followed by ripe peach on the back palate. A chalky minerality and complexity complements the fruit. Pairs well with oysters, seafood, pasta and chicken.

Peach, pear and citrus flavors are plump and juicy, with a thread of floral details and whiffs of lemongrass and dried mango on the finish. Drink now. 35,000 cases made, 35,000 cases imported.

The Crawfords surely picked one of the most marginal sites in Marlborough, almost directly on the coast and exposed to often harsh winds. The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc reveals some progress over the past two vintages, but it remains a bit short of my expectations. Hints of snow peas accent passion fruit notes on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is concentrated but slightly one-dimensional, showing mostly grapefruit flavors. There's an attractive creaminess on the palate and a lingering finish, so this is on the right track.

Currently this vintage of Loveblock is ultrayoung, with what feels like a fair whack of sulfur overlaying the fruit. Peach, tropical fruit and honeysuckle are there, along with a flicker of something herbal. The palate is creamy with nicely balanced acidity and a bitter note on the finish.
