The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc

If you’ve been following our “Top 10 Budget Wines” list, you’ll see a new one on this: The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc.  At just $11 – $13 per bottle this crisp, light wine is a sure hit.

The Crossings Sauvignon BlancThe Crossings Sauvignon Blanc originates from Marlborough, New Zealand and is produced by New Zealand’s Wine Producer of the Year 2014, Yealands Wine Group. Truth be told, we only picked up the bottle because of absolute favorite, Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling, wasn’t carried by the store we stopped by.

Boy are we happy we picked up this bottle. We’ve repeated the purchase a number of time since for “wine pairing purposes”. The Crossing Sauvignon Blanc is a very crisp white wine, which pairs nicely with many recipes. It’s not overly sweet but still have powerful aromas of passionfruit on the nose, and has a complex blend of melon and stone fruit flavors. Unlike other Sauvignon Blanc’s at this price range, no bitter aftertaste makes an appearance. The flavor shines through from first sip to the last.

The New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs definitely have a more citrusy tone and flavor profile than California Sauvignon Blancs. And that’s a good thing if you like a more robust white wine.

From the Fact Sheet: The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of gooseberry and passionfruit, underpinned with citrus notes. The palate is full with pure fruit flavours, yet balanced with a persistent, crisp mineral finish.
