On a search for a nice sauvignon blanc on a nite where I wasn't trying to spend more than $10, I happened upon this wine. It wasn't my first choice, as I had perused the aisles after passing it initially. Since this store had a very limited selection anyway, and the price was right, I decided to settle on it.

One of the first things to notice about the bottle was that it had a sticker on it claiming that it took a gold medal at the 2006 International Eastern Wine Competition in Corning, NY. One thing that I have learned is that there a lot of judging contests, and they all have interesting names, many of which are so untrue. In this case, I would like to have known what else was entered in the contest.

Anyway, as a low priced sauvignon blanc, it's not bad, though it's buttery texture hints more to a California style of Chardonnay. You can definitely grasp the taste of both honeydew and nectarines, though it's missing the essential citrus flavors (lemon and grapefruit) that sauvignon blanc has.
