The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The wine presents powerful aromas of passionfruit on the nose, combined with a complex palate where melon and stone fruit flavours are underpinned by a racy acidity and the classic flinty, mineral undertones of Awatere Sauvignon Blanc." - The Crossings

A special place where early European settlers first crossed the fast flowing waters of the Awatere River in Marlborough, New Zealand. The Crossings was founded by a group of wine lovers who dreamed of crafting outstanding wines from grapes grown in the picturesque Awatere Valley in the Marlborough region at the north eastern tip of the South Island of New Zealand. Their dream was realised in 2001 with the first vintage of The Crossings. Today, with three superb vineyards producing Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and a state-of-the-art winery, The Crossings wines have an enviable reputation for quality in several of the world's most discerning markets. The 143 hectare (353 acres) estate is planted on three distinctive vineyards, each on alluvial river terraces, on the northern bank of the Awatere River. Read less

Must have been good. My daughter-in-law drank it all by herself. Unusual only in the amount she consumed.

The Wine Spectator said "Tangy, with a core of green apple, passion fruit and Key lime flavors. Smooth and intense, finishing on a mouthwatering note. Drink now."

The Crossings is one of a small group of pioneering Awatere Valley winegrowers. Recognized as a distinct subregion of Marlborough, the Awatere Valley’s low vigor soils and dry climate produce grapes with intense fruit flavors, infused with a delightful minerality. 2013 was an excellent vintage and an increased proportion of the very special Medway Vineyard fruit has enhanced this 2013’s intensity and texture. Winemaking was centered on retaining the vintage’s vibrant fruitiness underpinned by lovely acids and the distinct mineral signature of the Awatere Valley. The Wine Spectator said it was "Tangy, with a core of green apple, passion fruit and Key lime flavors. Smooth and intense, finishing on a mouthwatering note. Drink now."
