89 points Wine Spectator: "Light and zingy, with a warm-pebble aroma wafting through the lime and other citrus character, lingering on the bright finish. Drink now." (03/09) According to Wine Enthusiast: "A reliable source for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, The Crossings 2008 features melon and fig aromas that blend seamlessly with more citrusy, herbal flavors. It's a medium-bodied wine with a refreshing finish of grapefruit and wet stones." (05/09)
In The Great Wines of America - The Top Forty Vineyards, and Vintages, author Paul Lukacs selected Gainey Vineyard Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc as one of America∆s forty finest wines. We doubt Mr. Lukacs will change his mind after tasting our new vintage, produced once again from grapes grown in our Gainey Home Ranch.
The current trend in New World Sauvignon Blanc is to cool-ferment the wine in stainless steel tanks to accentuate the variety∆s refreshing, fruit-forward qualities.
Enjoying it before dinner with almost any kind of appetizer, shellfish, fish, chicken, pasta and goat cheese (it loves goat cheese!!).
