While I am still on a little bit of a Sauvignon Blanc kick, I try to find different ones in a variety of price ranges. This one went for less than $10.

This is actually the second time that I had this wine, and coincidentally, I had it with exactly the same meal; Chinese Pork Fried Rice, spicy, with shrimp added in (I get it from a little shop at 7th & Market Streets in Philadelphia).

I could only give this wine a 6; while the taste is bright, not to too bright, it's great for drinking right through. However, the taste does fade not too long after opening, meaning just twelve hours later.
