The moment the bottle is opened there is no doubt that this is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Explosive aromas of grapefruit, mango and fresh mown grass lead into intense flavors of lychee, citrus and star fruit. The bright lime-zest finish is both crisp and lingering. The 2018 Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown on small family farms in the acclaimed Marlborough appellation. The McLean vineyard is located in the heart of the appellation where the free-draining alluvial soils contribute the mango and ripe green aromas, while the Comely Bank fruit is all about citrus and zest.
A veritable tropical fruit bowl of aromas-with just the slightest whisper of grass-slides smoothly into a light- to medium-bodied palate of zingy acidity, slippery texture and plenty more ripe pineapple and guava fruit.
