Tasting Notes: Citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes for which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned. Juicy acidity and fruit sweetness, providing a balanced flavour profile. The finish is fresh, zesty, and lingering.
Food Pairing: fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.
A musky fusion of sweet scented fruits - nectarines, peache s and nashi pears with a dash of orange zest - intermingled with a floral perfume reminiscent of s tar jasmine and citrus blossom. A generous palate with citrus and cassis flavours , deliciously ripe and succulent, finishing with that classic Marlborough zing.
Winemaker's Notes: The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of gooseberry and passionfruit, underpinned with citrus notes. The palate is full with pure fruit flavours, yet balanced with a persistent, crisp mineral finish.
Napa Valley "2015" was another exceptional vintage in the Napa Valley, resulting in a compelling Sauvignon Blanc full of citrus and tropical flavors. The inclusion of Sémillon to the blend adds depth and complexity to the aroma and palate." (Half-Bottle)
Our 2015 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging.
