Winemaker Notes

The color is vibrant with a crisp and subtle green hue. The bouquet is of dried herb and gunflint compliment gooseberry, passionfruit and pungent grassy aromas. On the palate there is flaovro of lime zest and white floral notes are framed by a structured yet supple mid palate. Mouth-watering acidity with the Awatere's signature mineral background complete the persistent finish.
Food Matching: Panfried calamari with coriander served with sourdough bread.

Australian Wine Companion
Blue-gold award at 2010 Sydney International Wine Competition; a clean bouquet with passionfruit and citrus aromas foreshadows an intense and lively palate with a lingering finish; great bargain.

The Crossings
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.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
