Love this Pinot Noir from the Central Otago wine region, lush and juicy with ripe fresh cherry, raspberry, white pepper and anise spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm, textured and grippy. Pair with roast duck.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast duck, roast chicken, turkey.

Loveblock 2018 Pinot Noir is simply gorgeous and luscious on the nose and palate with fresh cherry, raspberry, anise and pepper spice aromas and flavours. Smooth and satisfying, pour with roast duck or turkey. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
