2017 Chasing Venus Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
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.
In 1768 the famous English navigator Captain James Cook was asked by the Royal Navy to observe the passage of Venus at Tahiti. His real mission was to search and prove the existence of Terra Australis Incognita (unknown southern land), which we now know as Australia. During his travels, Captain James Cook spent six months chartering the New Zealand coast and proved that the country was not a continent as originally thought, but two separate islands. In homage to New Zealand and the pioneering spirit of Captain Cook, Crew wines created the Chasing Venus portfolio. Chasing Venus wines are produced vineyards in the heart of the Marlborough appellation. Griggs is an old riverbed composed of gravelly, well-draining soils that produce grapes with pronounced grapefruit flavors. The Race Track vineyard is just west of the town of Blenheim and planted to heavy clay soils, which lend herbaceous aromas and flavors. Rounding out the trio is Comely Bank vineyard, which is located just south of Blenheim in the alluvial soils of the valley.
