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
