In 1768 the Endeavour set sail to study the the passage of Venus crossing the sun in the Pacific, Captain Cook's real instructions; to find the mysterious southern continent, and with the help of a Tahitian chief, the Endeavour laid anchor in New Zealand in October 1769. Let's all thank Cook for Chasing Venus right into some great wine country. This wine has 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. Cheers!
