Down on my luck and basically between paychecks, I still needed to have me a couple of bottles of white wine available for casual drinking, so on my way to NJ for gas, I stopped into Canal's in Pennsauken for my fix.

I definitely would say that my fancy right now is Sauvignon Blanc (SB), with the occasional South American Chardonnay. And we all know that the best releases right now are coming from Chile, Argentina and from Australia and New Zealand in the South Pacific.

Seeing a bottle at a good price is one thing that definitely attracts my attention, and I believe that this bottle was $6.99 or less (oh, where is my receipt).

Like a good SB, this has a very crisp and rewarding citrus flavor composed of grapefruit and lime that delights your tastebuds. The flavor falloff at the end is not to quick and not to slow, but it allows you to easily taste whatever else you are having without overshadowing it.

This wine is definitely a good buy for casual dining, a cookout, or a nice romantic picnic.
