This is a crisp and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with lots of citrus and gooseberry aromas. Crisp and refreshing with lemon and lime flavours together with a steely mineral quality.

These next two wines  were selected at two fine dinning restaurants (specialty restaurants) on a Royal Caribbean cruise. With Chops supplying us with a beautifully cooked and seasoned Filet mignon.  I wanted a cross between a medium to heavy Cabernet and this one came through.

Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains.  2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc is grown in a cold weather climate in Chile, and steel-aged for a bright, tart, and ultimately refreshing feel. The aromas are perfumed with grapefruit, and the flavors offer succulent notes of lemon, gooseberry, and grass, with a mild salinity that is balanced by mellow honeysuckle on the finish

Inti Chardonnay (Chile)

This Chardonnay is beautiful with bursting fresh citrus fruit flavors. A little herbaceousness (almost bell pepper like) underlies the palate and gives it the Chilean style. This fruit on this wine is very similar to taking a grape off the vine and tossing it into your mouth, which is the exact goal of the winery. Truly superb.
