Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This wine displays lifted aromas of ripe bruised apple, orange zest and ruby red grapefruit, followed by a vibrant, green-edged herbaceous layer and some earthy cumin tones. The palate is elegant, with juicy Golden Delicious apple and mandarin complemented by fresh acidity and a mild tannin note. Layered and textured, the wine has notes of saffron, fennel, sweet orange and spices, with a lingering minerality on the finish.

The antioxidant properties of green tea (Camelia sinesis) have been known for centuries in China and Japan. These properties are being rediscovered in fields such as medicine and beauty, and we are now exploring the use of green tea in the preservation of wine. Every time the juice/wine was exposed to oxygen (i.e. every time it was moved), a small amount of green tea powder was added. 33% of the grapes were handpicked, whole bunch pressed to tank and settled for 3 hours, then racked to barrels. 66% were machine harvested, destemmed, pressed to stainless steel tanks and floated.

The grapes for this wine came from a small parcel of vines on our certified-organic Woolshed vineyard on the Loveblock Farm, in the Lower Dashwood sub-region of Marborough’s Awatere Valley. 

Perched high on the hills overlooking Marlborough's Awatere Valley, our Loveblock is far removed from the agricultural bustle in the valley below. From here you can almost see the end of the planet; the peace lifts you above your troubles. At Loveblock, we are charged with creating the best wine we can to express this extraordinary place and its unique aspect. We follow our deeply held belief in ethical farming which enables the wine to show its true and naked terroir."


91/100 Decanter UK, December 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Refreshing, innovative wine made with green tea powder (hence the name) as an antioxidant in place of SO2. Appealing zesty tangerine and apple compote aromas, with an intense, mouthfilling grapefruit attack on the palate. Organic."


5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, September 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Bright, medium straw-yellow with a golden hue, even colour throughout. Elegantly-full bouquet, packed with intense aromas of saffron, candied orange peel, lemon basil, lemon zest, underlying honeysuckle, complexing nuances interwoven softly. Medium-bodied, crisp and mouthwatering aromas of pink grapefruit, lemon basil, saffron forms a good core, melded with scallions, candied orange peels. Bright, thirst-quenching acidity provides freshness to the rich and complexing flavours. A light phenolic grip is slightly unctuous, flow smoothly and provides some grip and chewiness for the palate. This is a complex and highly flavoursome Sauvignon Blanc with exotic flavours of saffron, pink grapefruit, spicy herbal and floral elements, thirst-quenching and full of interest. Match with five-spice pork belly and whitebait fritters over the next 2-3 years. Organic certified, vegan friendly. 100% machines harvested, destemmed, fermented in stainless steel tanks with organic yeast to 13.5% alc, 4.9 g/l RS. Green tea powder used as a preservative, no sulphur added."

    5 star review  Best wine shop in Christchurch! Caters to all tastes and budgets. Be prepared to spend a while in this store as the options are endless. The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
