Chasing Harvest was created by husband and wife, Michael Kush and Jennifer Kingen Kush from Chicago.
What an interesting story this wine tells, with connections all around the world. Hailing from Chicago, Mike's passion for wine and winemaking had to take him to other places and he and his wife Jennifer have been travelling the world making wines in many far flung locations. They have settled on creating their own label in the Douro Valley, Portugal and Central Otago, New Zealand. It may be that this international approach has enabled them to produce styles of wine that are different to the usual local versions.
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This Bannockburn single vineyard wine expresses aromas of white peach, honeycomb, dried apricots, white flowers, and mineral notes. It has crisp acidity and a long finish."
94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Fabulous bouquet of Riesling with lemongrass and lime-flower, citrus peel and red apple, flowers and wet stone mineral suggestions. On the palate – crisp, mouth-watering, fruity, expressive textures and finishing dry. A delicious wine with precision, laser-beam acidity and a core of lemon, lime, apricot and apple flavours. Drinking well now and through 2026+."
