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

Pungently herbal, but filled with grapefruit and a hint of peach at the same time, offering a wonderful balance of ripe fruit character with herbal, savory notes. Easy to drink: It's full and round in the mouth, with good persistence.

A light nose with touches of white peach, apricot and a touch of passion fruit. Good definition, quite feminine. Vibrant entry, racy acidity, brimming full of lemon zest, apple and lime. Very focused and full of joie-de-vivre. Simple, but a joy to drink. Drink now. Tasted January 2008.

Dried cut grass with herb and stone flint compliment passion fruit and pungent citrusy aromas. Opens with a wonderfully vibrant freshness, developing floral and peachy aromas. Ripe zesty citrus flavors build through the succulent juicy acidity and signature minerality of the long finish.

Tasting Notes - Vivid with an eye catchingly subtle green hue. Dried cut grass with herb and stone flint compliment passionfruit and pungent citrusy aromas. Opens with a wonderfully vibrant freshness, developing floral and peachy aromas. Ripe zesty citrus flavours build through the succulent juicy acidity and signature minerality of the long finish.
