Tasting Notes

The 2021 Chasing Venus has beautiful aromas of grapefruit, lychee, and lime. The fresh flavors of guava, lemongrass, mango, and citrus hang on the palate and linger in the finish. There is the expected snap of bright acidity upfront and then the fruit flavors broaden into a rich texture. Crisp, clean, and expansive all at once.

Vineyard Notes

Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown on small family farms in the acclaimed Marlborough appellation where the free-draining alluvial soils and the long, cool growing season enhance the varietal citrus aromas and tropical fruit flavors.

Pairings

This wine is delicious on its own; it also pairs well with fresh oysters, mussels in a buttery sauce or a simple roast chicken.

Other Notes

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 sail on to Australia. Quite the accomplishment for a captain who was just out Chasing Venus.
