The Crossings Wines Pinot Noir 2013
The Marlborough region, at the north eastern corner of the South Island of New Zealand is recognised throughout the world as the source of stunning cool climate wines. With vineyards established in 1996, The Crossings Wines is one of a small group of pioneering Awatere Valley winegrowers.
Anchored in an elegant structure, the tannins sit alongside a mid-palate boasting a supple and very intense core of fruit. Aromatically the nose shows delicate red berry fruits while taking in violet and forest floor nuances before finishing with an infusion of darker cherry notes. High toned fruit forms a gateway into a revealing palate and very persistent finish. The palate is rich and unusually mouth filling for an Awatere wine while retaining the taut structure and minerality that typifies the sub region's fruit. Enjoy with lamb loin or seared tuna as the wine unfurls and opens for hours in the glass.
