The Crossings

Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2018

“Lemon, pear and grapefruit flavors are fresh and bright, set on a crisp frame, with plenty of vibrant acidity. Drink now.”

MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator

Awatere Valley Pinot Gris 2017

“The 2017 Pinot Gris features aromas of apple and melon. This medium-bodied wine then offers soft, round flavors of baked orchard fruit that finish with hints of cinnamon and clove. It’s clean and quaffable, not always an easy feat in the tough 2017 vintage.”

Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Awatere Valley Pinot Noir 2017

“This has an elegant purple berry purity on both nose and palate, enlivened by a streak of minerality and brisk, mouthwatering acidity. It’s young and vibrant, enjoyable now but should age well too. Top value!” 91 points
