Charles Shaw Sauvignon Blanc

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: California – USA
Cost: $3

Light, crisp,  and with an ever so slight citrus flavor, this light white wine will pair with appetizers, seafood, pork, or chicken.

Recommendations: This may sound weird, but while I know this was a Sauvignon Blanc, it tasted more like a Pinot Grigio to me.  Granted a half-way decent Pinot Grigio (especially for the price), but it lacked the citrus and acidity that I usually associate with Sauvignon Blanc.

Much like the Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s hard to argue against this wine for the price if you’re already in Trader Joe’s, but it’s also not hard to do better than this Sauvignon Blanc for the price (Ponga and Terra Andina are both under $10 and taste better)

If you’re already in Trader Joe’s it’s worth it to pick up a bottle of this to pair with an afternoon snack (my wife and I drank this wine with cheese, crackers, hummus, bread, and sausage), but keep in mind that you can do better for not much more money.
