The Crossings vineyards are located in the Awatere and Wairau sub-regions of Marlborough, New Zealand, where vines flourish under brilliant sunshine and cool coastal breezes. Close to the Pacific Ocean and neighboring rivers, there’s a refreshing vibrancy captured in every glass of The Crossings wine.
The Crossings wines are a pure and elegant expression of Marlborough, New Zealand’s most prominent winemaking district, known for delivering Sauvignon Blancs with explosive flavors and zesty vibrancy.
With vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau subregions of Marlborough, surrounded by mountain ranges, a wild river and the Pacific Ocean, The Crossings create perfectly balanced and refreshing wines.
The extreme climate of hot days and cool nights produces slow-ripening grapes, creating the intense, concentrated fruit flavors and crisp acidity that have become synonymous with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Originally hailing from Australia, our Senior Winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst has an impressive amount of winemaking experience that spans the past twenty years, with experience in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. His Bachelor of Agricultural Science (Oenology) at The University of Adelaide gained him First Class Honors and set him firmly on his path to becoming a top winemaker.
Anthony joined our winemaking team as Senior Winemaker in January 2021, drawn by our strong sustainability focus and excited by the opportunity to work with the unique flavors of Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Anthony previously worked for Constellation Brands, where he amassed fifteen years’ experience in a number of senior winemaker positions, most recently as their Regional Winemaker and the face of Kim Crawford.
