Pale straw with a hint of green and gold. This wine displays lifted aromas of ripe bruised apple, orange zest and ruby red grapefruit, followed by a vibrant, green-edged herbaceous layer and some earthy cumin tones. The palate is elegant, with juicy Golden Delicious apple and mandarin complemented by fresh acidity and a mild tannin note. Layered and textured, the wine has notes of saffron, fennel, sweet orange and spices, with a lingering minerality on the finish.

Loveblock Marlborough TEE Sauvignon Blanc (No Sulphur Added) Tasting Notes with Erica

Vineyard: Woolshed Vineyard

The grapes for this wine came from a small parcel of vines on our certified-organic Woolshed vineyard on the Loveblock Farm, in the Lower Dashwood sub-region of Marborough’s Awatere Valley. The soil type is predominately aged alluvial loams containing some silt loam over stone. Dependent on vigour, the vines are pruned to two or three canes and trained in a normal vertical shoot position. Harvest occurred in the month of April. No sulphur or ascorbic acid were used in the vineyard.

Use of regenerative growth, manure and horn on the vineyard is employed to promote balanced, fertile soil, biodiversity and healthy grape growth in order to produce wine without the use of chemical pesticides, fungicides or additives of any kind.


The antioxidant properties of green tea (Camelia sinesis) have been known for centuries in China and Japan, where the brew has been enjoyed for its beneficial effects. Its potency is now being rediscovered in fields such as medicine and beauty, and we are now exploring its use in the preservation of wine.

Every time the juice / wine was exposed to oxygen (i.e. every time it was moved), 5 mg/L of green tea powder was added (Ti Premium® SG produced by Enologica Vason S.p.A., a registered wine additive).

33% of the grapes were handpicked, whole bunch pressed to tank and settled for 3 hours, then racked to barrels. 66% were machine harvested, destemmed, pressed to stainless steel tanks and floated.
