For over 20 years, Crossroads has represented the very best of small parcel winemaking.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS The grapes were machine harvested and taken directly to the winery for pressing. Individual batches were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures with a variety of yeast strains to enhance the fresh fruit aromas. A small portion (4%) was fermented at ambient temperatures in older barriques to give added texture and some intriguing characters. The young wine spent the winter on light lees to further enrich the palate weight and texture. After blending and stabilising the wine was bottled after a light filtration.
WINE AND FOOD A crisp style with lemon, lime, grapefruit and passionfruit notes complemented with smoke and subtle lees characters. The palate is juicy and textural with lingering fresh fruit to finish. This wine is delicious as an aperitif, with chilled melons, asparagus and lamb, oysters, sole in lemon juice, fish and chips.
