2017 Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough NZ image

WINEMAKING NOTES: Big, bold aromatics of grapefruit, lemongrass and orange blossom lead to vibrant flavors of tangerine, lime zest and pungent gooseberry. The finish has a bright acidity and notes of flinty minerals. Pair this classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with oysters, sashimi or seared tuna salad with a wasabi dressing.



 Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Production: 7,200 cases



ABOUT THE VINEYARD: Chasing Venus wines are produced from grapes grown on small family farms in the acclaimed Marlborough appellation. Griggs is situated in an old riverbed against the eastern hills of the appellation where gravelly, well-drained soils promote pronounced grapefruit flavors. The Ballochdale Vineyard is located in the Awatere Valley where the fruit develops stone fruit flavors and old-world mineral notes. The vineyard in Grovetown, at the very southern edge of the Marlborough appellation, produces fruit with a tart citrus note and the classic New Zealand herbal flavors.
