#42 TOP 100 WINE OF THE YEAR 2018 WINE SPECTATOR Loveblock is the project of husband and wife team, Kim and Erica Crawford. After selling their enormously popular brand Kim Crawford, they forged ahead with this organic vineyard in Marlborough, believing deeply in embracing a natural life and protecting the environment. Winemaker Kim Crawford fashions this beauty from their family-owned estate on the Bendigo Loop Road in 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 and Pommard provide structure.

Wine SpectatorRich 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.

Wine AdvocateSourced 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.
