Winemaker Notes

The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of bell pepper and passion fruit, underpinned with citrus notes. The palate is full with pure fruit flavors, yet balanced with a persistent, crisp mineral finish.Enjoy with both fresh and cooked seafood dishes such as oysters, prawns, and fish.

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

Typical to the more sea swept Awatere Valley, this aromatic wine leads with dried green herbs and tomato leaf aromas, although there’s plenty of pineapple, passion fruit and lime there, too. The palate knits all of these flavors together within a creamy texture, and the finish is long and herbal. A juicy, refreshing drop. Deutsch Family Wine and Spirits.

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Grassy notes add an appealing fresh green accent to the core of crisp lemon, lime and pear flavors, with a hint of minerality on the finish. Drink now.

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.

Marlborough Wine

New Zealand

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
