You would never have guessed it but this winery sits right alongside a set of crossroads down in Hawke’s Bay wine country. Where do they come up with these crazy names?
Yep, this is Crossroads and for over 25 years they’ve been making top notch Hawke’s Bay wine, especially Chardonnay and the Bordeaux red varieties. This is their “Winemakers Collection” which means it’s the flash stuff you’d get served if you ever got invited round the winemaker’s place for dinner.
And if did get set to be served Southern fried chicken with butter chips and a fresh garden salad, that’s his pick for the perfect wine and food pairing here. Using fruit from their Kereru vineyard in Hawke’s Bay and aged 10 months in oak – this is a rich, creamy, flavoursome Chardonnay with good potential to get even better over the next several years.
