2017 Chasing Venus New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
Vibrant, mouthwatering flavors of grapefruit, pineapple and lime zest
fill the palate.
The 2017 is a lovely pale straw color with intoxicating aromas of citrus and passion fruit. Vibrant, mouthwatering flavors of grapefruit, pineapple and lime zest fill the palate. Nice minerality on the refreshingly long finish.
This Sauvignon Blanc is great on its own as an apertif or paired with oysters, sushi, gazpacho or spicy Thai chicken noodles.
In 1769, Captain Cook took command of the HMS Endeavor, setting sail for the Pacific to study the passage of the planet Venus across the disc of the Sun. Little did the world know, this was a ruse for Cook’s true objective: He’d been commissioned by the British to find the mysterious and elusive “Southern Continent.” On this voyage, Cook became the first European to explore New Zealand, and he did eventually find Australia. Quite the accomplishment for a captain who was just out Chasing Venus.
