Carefully harvested fruit was destemmed directly into open and closed fermenters, with hand plunging, pump-over and delestage techniques used during fermentation. After post-ferment maceration, the component wines were drained and pressed off, settled, and run to barriques for malolactic fermentation. The wines were then racked to barrel for 10 months, with occasional stirring.

The result is a juicy, supple Merlot with fruit notes of blackcurrant and plum supported by warm toasty oak. The lush, silky mid-palate leads to a long, fine finish.

Food Matching

Partner this Merlot with a medley of roast pumpkin, beetroot and bell peppers with Gorgonzola, or with braised short ribs in Chinese five spice powder.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Crossroads was started in 1987 with the aim to produce the best possible wine from an exceptional place in an exceptional country – Hawke’s Bay in New Zealand. We are driven by the desire to bring you wines that set the benchmarks of what that variety can achieve in Hawke’s Bay.

To achieve this, it became clear we had to have total control of our winegrowing and winemaking from start to finish. To that end, Crossroads purposely sourced and developed more vineyards. Today, all our Hawke’s Bay wines come from our own vineyards.

Carefully selected parcels of land have been developed for each specific variety to ensure all care is given at every step in the process. As a small team, every decision is made to ensure that Crossroads wines are great not just good, but are crafted without ever compromising quality.

Our signature wine, Talisman, reflects our belief that hard work and good fortune are closely linked and that only wine made with love can be truly great.
