93 points, Best Buy, Tastings.com
Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc offers enormous aromatics of grapefruit, lychee and lemongrass that make this vintage the straight-forward wine that Sauvignon Blanc lovers are going to adore. Following flavors of bright tropical fruits comes a lime zest finish with hints of passion fruit pith. Pair this bold New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with oysters, sashimi or seared tuna salad with a wasabi dressing.
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!
