Additional Information

Produced in New Zealand's Awatere Valley, a sub appellation of Marlborough, on the northern tip of the South Island. The Awatere Valley has a slightly cooler climate than Marlborough's Wairau Valley, with a longer growing season. The Crossings is 100% sustainable and an accredited member of Sustainable Winegrowing of New Zealand. 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.
