About Crossroads Pinot Noir ...

The fruit for Mavens Marlborough Pinot Noir is sourced from a variety of premium sites and clones. A strong focus on attention to detail in the vineyard led to excellent fruit exposure and each block was entirely hand-picked.

The bunches were hand picked (very important advantage to making great Pinots), de-stemmed but not crushed, then transferred to traditional open-top vats. Prior to the onset of ferment each batch was given an extended cold soak, in which the juice and berries were held at low temperatures for up to ten days, to gently extract colour and flavour. During the subsequent wild fermentation, the vats were hand-plunged four times daily to ensure natural balance and structure - after which the wine was drained and then pressed to new and seasoned French barriques for maturation.

Deep ruby in colour, this premium exhibits rich spicy and savoury aromas with subtle toasty notes from French barrique maturation balanced with dark cherry fruit and soft ripe tannins.

About the winemaker ....

With vineyards in both of Marlborough's sub-regions Crossroads Wineries selected fruit parcels that best express the vibrancy they enjoy. The Confluence and Lannark Lane vineyards in the Wairau and the Awatere's Medway and Willow Flat sites all contributed parcels. Additional vineyard work was required to maximise fruit quality including leaf-plucking and dropping of sub standard bunches prior to harvest ensured only the best fruit was ready for harvest.

Collected in the morning cool the individual vineyard blocks were completely destemmed into a mix of open top and closed fermenters. Gentle cold-soaking, over 5-7 days, extracted colour and the more expressive aromas while cap-plunging built in tannin structure and depth. Once fermentation was complete about half of the new wine was tank aged cool on very fine lees to enhance the aromatic spectrum and texture. The remainder was raised in French oak barriques.
