Notes from the Winemaker:
The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine come from Central Otago. Here, the soil type is free-draining sandy loam over schist alluvium gravels known as Molyneux soils. The clones planted in these soils are B777, B667, B115, Clone 5 (Pommard) and Abel. The vineyard is entirely cane pruned to two canes, with the wire being approximately half full. The Dijon clones give the wine nice floral notes, while Abel provides structure to the wine.


Ratings & Reviews
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is a tightly wound, laser-focused Pinot that offers lifted aromas of red raspberry, cherry flowers, savory herb, stalk and a streak of mushrooms in hoisin sauce. A long line of savory tannins knit together crunchy fruit on the palate and flow right through to the herb-flecked finish." - Christina Pickard (5/1/2019)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Savory and distinctive, with minty herbal and minerally crushed rock details to the core of firm cherry and raspberry flavors, accented by clove and cumin notes. The tannins firm up on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 1,400 cases made, 1,000 cases imported." - MW

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Showing more plumminess and savory complexity than the 2016, Loveblock's 2017 Pinot Noir hints at dark fruit, compost and button mushrooms. It's medium-bodied, with firm but ripe tannins and a long, slightly grainy finish." - Joe Czerwinski (29th Mar 2019)
