The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand White Wine 375 mL

$7.99

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.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast 89 Points – 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.
Wine Spectator 89 Points – 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.

Description

The Crossings wines are sourced from our wild riverside vineyards in the Awatere Valley. Gouged out by ancient glaciers, The Awatere Valley is Marlborough’s most dramatic and most premium winegrowing sub-region. It is the southern-most, driest and coolest of the three sub-regions, boasting a rich diversity of soil structures, large diurnal shifts and slow-ripening grapes for more intense fruit flavours and fresher, crisper acids.

The careful cultivation of each vineyard around the natural features of the land, from terraces and natural vegetation to original seed plantings, is a demonstration of our commitment to sustainable winegrowing. Explore our distinctive riverside vineyards to find out more.
