Yealands makes wines in Marlborough on the northeast side of the South Island. The vineyard for Southbank is located far inland where the Waihopai River ends up in the Wairau River, the vineyards for The Crossings are further south and also far inland on the Awatere River. Far inland it is dry and cool with large differences between the day and night temperatures. This ensures expressive and fresh wines. Miles Dineen and his team work in a certified sustainable way. For example, sheep are grazing in the vineyard, so that less mowing is needed and the soil automatically receives new food. Other examples: biofuels are used, no pesticides and insecticides are used, but natural opponents are promoted, the grape remains are composted and distributed in the vineyard.

The Crossings Pinot Noir has the well-known pinot noir light sparkling ruby red color in the glass. This Marlborough Pinot Noir has an impressive nose with rich and ripe red cherries and berries with a wealth of slender and softly crunchy tannins. We also smell cherries, violets, light vanilla from the partial wood aging, spiciness and mushrooms. In the mouth a soft attack, lots of juice and plenty of freshness. This Crossings is now such a tasty Pinot Noir that never bores.
