SAVVY LOVE

NZ House & Garden - - DRINKS -

New vin­tages of sau­vi­gnon blanc are usu­ally re­leased in late au­tumn and win­ter, al­though a num­ber of bou­tique winer­ies hold onto them and have only just re­cently re­leased last year’s vin­tage. Love­block is one of those winer­ies. Owned by well-known wine­maker Kim Craw­ford and his wife Erica, it’s a bou­tique win­ery in Marl­bor­ough’s Awa­tere Val­ley. Its 2017 sau­vi­gnon blanc ($22) is or­ganic, quite aus­tere and el­e­gant. Try it with the Golden

Crispy Chicken recipe on page 134.
