Producer
Located in New Zealands Awatere Valley, a sub appellation of Marlborough, on the northern tip of the South Island. The Awatere Valley has a slightly cooler climate than Marlboroughs Wairau Valley, with a longer growing season. Intense fruit flavors, excellent varietal character, fine minerality, balanced with brilliant acidity. The Crossings is 100% sustainable and an accredited member of Sustainable Winegrowing of New Zealand. The Crossings is a 353 acre Estate vineyard property with three different vineyards. Medway (est. 1996), Brackenfield (est. 1998), and Willow Flat (est. 2001). Three wines are produced Sauvignon Blanc, Single Vineyard Unoaked Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. All of The Crossings wines are bottled under screwcap. Superb winemaker Matt Mitchell is a Pinot Noir specialist and has worked in the Yarra Valley in Australia and in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Only French oak is used in the barrel program at The Crossings. The Crossings is named after the place where early European settlers first crossed the fast flowing Awatere River. A state-of-the-art winery was completed in 2007.
