Fincas Patagonicas-Zolo-Sauvignon Blanc-Mendoza-Argentina-2006-$11.00-Light crisp acidic nose, lemon, zesty gooseberry, smooth.  I am not a big Sauvignon Blanc fan, prefer a fuller white wine, but this was very good, especially at this price range.  It was enjoyable, probably should have been consumed a year ago so was glad wine was still good.      WS-87      CR-4    Good with chicken, fish and salads. 

Vavasour Wines Ltd-Dashwood-Winemakers’ Selection-Sauvignon Blanc-Marlborough-New Zealand-2008-$8.99-Crisp nose of citrus, pale yellow in color.  Pear and vanilla, a light easy drinking wine.      WS-90     CR-4    Good with salads, chicken, seafood.

Kim Crawford Wines-Sauvignon Blanc-Marlborough-New Zealand-2008-$13.99-A crisp nose of citrus and grass, light straw color.  A refreshing white, lime, grapefruit, apple and right amount of acidity.        WS-91     RP-85      CR-4       Good with chicken, salads, seafood.

Walnut Block Wines-Collectables-Sauvignon Blanc-Marlborough-New Zealand-2008-$10.99- A refreshing crisp nose of citrus, light straw in color.  Pineapple, lime, minerals, light bodied, easy drinking.             WS-88           CR-4         Good with seafood, cheese, salads.
