We're Loving Loveblock!
If there’s one wine brand that is instantly recognizable and synonymous with New Zealand, it has to be Kim Crawford. Since its founding in 1996 by Kim and Erica Crawford, the brand seemingly became an overnight success story and quickly skyrocketed to become one of the most popular Sauvignon Blancs on the planet. After a notoriously successful sale of the Kim Crawford brand, Kim Crawford the winemaker wanted to achieve a lifelong dream of owning his own vineyards and practicing organic agriculture. Once the enterprising couple found a wild, untamed hillside in Marlborough's Awatere Valley, the Loveblock brand was born. You’ll find all the explosive aromatics that New Zealand is known for – bright punches of pineapple, herby tomato leaf, tropical fruit and sweet meadow grass. Because a portion of the wine was fermented in oak, you’ll find a soft, round texture that unfolds to reveal pineapple flavors, pink grapefruit, and a sweet basil edge. Enjoy this wine with oysters, shellfish and anything with summer herbs and we think that you, too, will fall in love with Loveblock!
