Winemaker Notes

The color is bright with a fresh softly green hue. The bouquet has subtle yet exotic notes of white peach and pink grapefruit, that complement gooseberry and passionfruit aromas. On the palate is lifted stone fruit and citrus is framed by a finely textured palate and zesty acidity with a classic Awatere flinty mineral background.

Food Matching: Baked whole fish, couscous and fresh tasty salads

The Marlborough region, at the north eastern corner of the South Island of New Zealand is recognised throughout the world as the source of stunning cool climate wines. With vineyards established in 1996, The Crossings is one of a small group of pioneering Awatere Valley winegrowers. Recognised as a distinct sub-region of Marlborough, the Awatere Valley's low vigour soils and dry climate produce grapes with intense fruit flavours, infused with a delightful minerality. We take our name from the location of the ford used by early settlers to cross the fast flowing Awatere River. The river forms a pristine southern boundary to our three vineyards, Medway, Willow Flat and Brackenfield Estate. Our passion is to produce truly stunning wines, with energy, skill and determination. We take our inspiration from the outstanding natural beauty of the land and have an abiding commitment to sustainability, which infuses every aspect of our craft.

Wine Enthusiast
A reliable source for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, The Crossings 2008 features melon and fig aromas that blend seamlessly with more citrusy, herbal flavors. It’s a medium-bodied wine with a refreshing finish of grapefruit and wet stones.

Wine Spectator
Light and zingy, with a warm-pebble aroma wafting through the lime and other citrus character, lingering on the bright finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

The Crossings, New Zealand
The Crossings Winery Video
We have arrived at The Crossings in 2002 after a seven year development journey. This began in 1995 when an exceptional site in the upper reaches of the Awatere Valley was identified. The site, with its massive clay cliffs acting to trap heat, its low frost incidence and the devigorating outwash gravel soils, was just perfect to produce classic Awatere wines of outstanding quality. The first vineyard development was made possible by the investment from a group of New Zealanders each sharing an interest in wine and the desire to invest in this unique opportunity. Interest was sufficient to allow for the development of a further two Awatere vineyards to compliment the initial vineyard in terms of terroir and flavour coming from the grapes grown on each site. By 2000 there were over 400 enthusiastic investors taking a keen interest in the vineyards and wine making developments, each calling The Crossings "our wine". From the beginning The Crossings had outstanding land, great vineyards, tremendous support and a dedicated team to bring together the crucial ingredients to produce wines of stand-out quality. The first wines made in 2001 show the character of the vineyards and The Crossings philosophy of wine and viticulture. See what we mean; open a bottle and quietly explore corners of this magnificent valley in your own time.

Sauvignon Blanc

View all products

Recognized for its distinctively herbaceous and aromatic, Sauvignon blanc, New Zealand is perfectly suited to the grape with its maritime climate, plenty of rainfall and abundant sunshine. Producers have almost unilaterally embraced cutting-edge winery technology, resulting in clean, high-quality wines at every price point from wallet-friendly to premium. Sauvignon blanc is at its best in Marlborough but thrives throughout as the country. It is New Zealand’s most planted and successful variety, also accounting for an overwhelming majority of its exports.
