Wine Review: Crossroads Winemakers Collection Chardonnay 2014

The Crossroads Winemakers Collection includes the very best parcels of fruit, carefully selected from their own vineyards, crafted with passion into the most exceptional wines, Hawke’s Bay has to offer. Exceptional growing conditions have delivered an outstanding Chardonnay in true Hawkes Bay/Bordeaux style.

This single vineyard wine from grapes grown on the sunny terraces of Crossroads’ southern vineyards on Keruru Road, is a complex Chardonnay with citrus blossom, nectarine and toasty oak characters on the nose. The palate is rich and creamy, with flavours of melon, lemon and peach leading to a long fresh finish.

If you were wondering what dish to serve this up with then what about some Southern fried chicken with butter chips?

Remember to drink responsibly.
