The wine presents pronounced aromas of fresh cut grass and lemon. Flavors of zesty lime mingle with stony minerals and herbs with just a touch of the classic bright grapefruit flavors. The finish is tangy and juicy with bright acidity.

In 1768 the renowned English navigator Captain James Cook was asked by the British Royal Navy to lead a secret mission - investigate the existence of a new continent, Terra Australis Incognita (unknown southern land), which we now know as Australia. To cloak his real objective, the crew was told that they would be sailing to Tahiti to observe the passage of the planet Venus. During his voyage, Captain Cook spent six months chartering the New Zealand coast and proved that the country was not a continent, but two separate islands. In homage to New Zealand and the pioneering spirit of Captain Cook, Crew Wines created Chasing Venus. Fruit for the wine is sourced from well-placed vineyards in the heart of the Marlborough appellation. Griggs Vineyard 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 south of Blenheim on the alluvial soils of the valley. Crew Wines is owned and managed by the Giguiere family, former owners and founders of R.H. Phillips. John and his wife Lane along with his brother Karl, focus on producing approachable, food-friendly wines that showcase a specific terroir or varietal.
Technical notes
Grapes were harvested from Griggs Vineyard planted on gravelly, well-draining soils and Burdon- Shutkowski Vineyard situated at the very southern edge of the Marlborough appellation. Cold fermented in stainless steel.

Elusive Venus In 1769, Captain Cook was given command of The Endeavour and instructed to set sail for the Pacific in order to study the passage of the planet Venus across the disc of the sun. This was predicted to take place in June of 1769, an event which would not take place again for 105 years. The trus set of instructions concerning the voyage was secret: Cook was to search for the mysterious and elusive southern continent. In Tahiti, Cook made friends with a Tahitian chief, Tupaia, who led him to New Zealand on the way to Cook’s successful mission discovering Australia. The rest of the world just thought he was out Chasing Venus. About the Appellation Chasing Venus focuses on what New Zealand does best: Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit source is from the Comely Bank and the Griggs Vineyards in the heart of the Marlborough region. The wines are being made under the supervision of winemaker Dan Cederquist and will be made in the aggressive pungent grapefruit gooseberry style that has made New Zealand world famous.
