Soft gooseberry notes with wonderfully vibrant intensity, leading into a ripe and nicely textured mid-palate. Lime zest flavours play against the signature minerality of the Awatere Valley, with a pleasant, persistent finish.
A lesser-known part of the Marlborough region of New Zealand, the ancient Awatere Valley lies between the waters of Cloudy Bay and the jagged Kaikoura Mountains.
The Crossings vineyards were planted amongst the first in the area allowing pick of the best sites. The 143 ha estate is planted in three distinctive vineyards, each on alluvial river terraces, on the northern bank of the Awatere River.
All three of their vineyards are fully accredited through the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand programme. This New Zealand wine industry initiative was established in 1995 to promote best practice in activities such as water usage, energy consumption, waste management and biodiversity.
