Overview

The grapes were 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 was fermented in older barriques to give added texture and some intriguing funky characters. The young wines spent the winter on light lees to further enrich the palate weight and texture.

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.
