MADE BY KIM CRAWFORD, I'D SAY HE KNOWS A THING OR TWO ABOUT SAUVIGNON BLANC!

"White pepper notes mingle with ripe peach, melon and tangerine flavors in this smooth and juicy white, offering details of green tea and lime zest that linger on the finish. Finds harmony and grace on the long, expressive finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 25,000 cases imported. -MW" (WS)

"Pungent, 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." (WA)

"This 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." (WE)
