Segment-2: New Zealand Wine - New Zealand’s Veteran Vintners Unveil New Loveblock Wines -Erica and Kim Crawford
02: Erica Crawford and her husband, Kim, renowned veterans of the New Zealand wine industry, are now sharing a story of a special place and its extraordinary wines for the first time, presenting the inaugural releases from Loveblock Vintners: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. The 2012 Loveblock Sauvignon Blanc and 2011 Loveblock Pinot Gris both hail from the Loveblock vineyard in Marlborough. For the Loveblock Pinot Noir, they have turned to their “Someone’s Darling” vineyard on the Bendigo Loop Road in Central Otago. These vineyards, one at the north end of New Zealand’s South Island, the other at the south end, might be hundreds of miles apart, but love surely connects them. The Loveblock Farm (vineyard) in the Awatere Valley is certified organic by BioGro New Zealand, the country’s leading organic certifier. The Central Otago property, purchased in 2008 and dedicated solely to Pinot Noir, is SWNZ (Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand) accredited. The wines, imported and marketed by Terlato Wines International, will be available this spring in the United States.
