Wine Spectator has named Loveblock's Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018 as one of the world's Top 100 wines for 2019.

Each year, the Wine Spectator, the world’s leading authority on wine, publishes a list of the most exciting wines from around the world from a pool of over 15,000 wines.

“We’re so excited to see our Central Otago Pinot Noir continuing to garner global recognition and represent New Zealand wines on an international stage,” said Erica Crawford, Loveblock founder.

Loveblock places particular emphasis on sustainability and doing things organically. The Pinot Noir Central Otago has this embedded in its core and is sustainably grown using ethical farming techniques.

“Sustainability is at the heart of Loveblock’s wine and brand, and in our view, organic and sustainable winegrowing is the way of the future,” said Crawford. “We couldn’t be more pleased that Wine Spectator is celebrating wines made using these techniques.”

“Since 2011, we have been striving to make beautiful wines while looking after the land we grow on, and are so proud to have a history of embracing and leading the charge when it comes to innovative and sustainable winemaking,” said Crawford.

Loveblock’s Pinot Noir Central Otago 2018 is just one of two wines to make the Top 100 list—a Mt Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc also placed.
