With vineyards established in 1996, The Crossings is one of a small group of pioneering Awatere Valley winegrowers. For this wine, we identified eight premium parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our Awatere Valley vineyards and were able to harvest the grapes at the optimal time. Each parcel was picked and fermented separately, allowing us to enhacne varietal character using carefully selected yeast strains. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks, followed by blending and stabilization before bottling.
