Wine EnthusiastThis wine offers a heady mélange of lychee, peach, pineapple and rose water, with just a touch of tomato leaf. Tangy fruit follows onto the palate, which has a lovely, viscous texture and tingly acidity. It's a highly likable, mouthwatering drop.
Wine AdvocatePungent, crushed tomato stalk aromas punctuate the nose of Loveblock's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc. There are some tropical-fruit notes as well, and perhaps a few grams of residual sugar to help round out the medium-bodied palate and enrich the mouthfeel. Like most of the slightly fragile wines from the 2018 vintage, it should be consumed over the next 6-9 months.
