Description

  • Toasty oak
  • Ripe stone fruit
  • Fresh melon & citrus
  • Clean, elegant finish

This Chardonnay presents a bouquet with layers of ripe peach, apricots, fresh melon and citrus with subtle hints of oak spices. The palate combines ripe fruit, lees complexity and hints of lightly toasted oak with a clean, elegant finish.

The 2019 growing season in Hawke’s Bay was outstanding. The new year brought with it long, hot, sunny summer days with moderate-cool nights, perfect ripening conditions for Chardonnay. The weather continued to remain favourable, allowing for fruit to be harvested without the pressure of rain.

The fruit was picked at ideal ripeness and gently pressed. The juice was settled and racked off solids then fermented with a range of vessels, temperatures and yeast strains to give complexity of aroma and mouth feel. After aging on yeast lees with regular stirring, and lightly oaked, the batches were racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Since its establishment in 1987, Crossroads’ vision has been to craft wines of quality that showcase the harmony of soil and climate in premium wine regions across New Zealand. The Crossroads Milestone Series celebrates our dedication from the vineyard to the winery – creating benchmark wines to savour every day.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with roast chicken, raw or lightly cooked shellfish and creamy pasta dishes.

Strong bold tastes with with citrus acidity bordering to melon. Excellent with fish or Asian dishes.

Refreshing wine which went well with all the suggested food pairings. I prefer a little more oak hence my 4 star rating
