The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is an elegant and fresh style wine, with tropical fruit flavours and hints of citrus and fresh herbs. The palate is filled with pure fruit flavours, nicely balanced with a crisp mineral finish. Enjoy with both fresh and cooked seafood dishes such as oysters, prawns and fish.
VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING
The 2020 growing season was very dry, which meant disease pressure was low and some timely light rains kept just enough water flowing in our rivers. We had a classic Marlborough autumn with warm days and cool nights, which created this season’s Sauvignon Blanc with our signature fresh natural acidity and intense fruit flavours. We had fairly stable weather during Sauvignon Blanc flowering, with a small amount of rain affecting some of the later flowering areas, resulting in lighter crops and intense flavours.
The grapes were harvested in ideal condition (25th-29th March, 2020), picking the terraced blocks at the point of optimum flavour development. Parcels of grapes from our Willowflat and Brackenfield Vineyards (Awatere Valley) were picked and fermented separately, allowing us to enhance varietal character using carefully selected yeast strains. A long, cool fermentation took place, followed by blending, stabilisation and filtering prior to bottling.
