2023 Frenzy Mount Richmond Sauvignon Blanc...$17.99
“It shows more richness and offers deeper flavors than most Sauvignons from the region priced under $20, but still shows excellent intensity of aroma and flavor, with lots of linear energy to complement the wine’s breadth and depth. An impressively complete wine, and a terrific value at this price.”
Rated 93/100 The Tasting Panel
"Expressive and mouthwatering, with firm yuzu, mango and lime flavors that mingle well with herbal accents of lemon verbena, lemon thyme and fresh ginger root. Notes of green tea linger on the finish."
Rated 90/100 The Wine Spectator

2022 Routestock Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc....$19.99
94% Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc & 6% Napa Valley Semillon

The aroma jumps out of the glass with flowers, herbs, and fruit such as oregano, fig, grapefruit and apricot. The pallet is so amazingly fresh, clean, and crisp with flavors of honeydew melon, grapefruit, thyme, and fig. There is a great combination of vibrant acidity and lift with a nice touch of richness that you can’t get from sauvignon blanc aged in stainless steel exclusively. The small addition of co-fermented Semillon adds some depth, density, and oiliness to the wine. This sauvignon blanc provides a vibrant dance on the palate and has a lingering fresh finish with flavors of fig and oregano.

2022 Forth Sauvignon Blanc Lake County...$15.99
The fruit for this delectable wine comes from one of the premier vineyards in Lake County. We harvested at the peak of ripeness, when the flavor profile and acidity were in perfect balance. This bright refresher bursts onto the palate with lime zest, fresh pineapple and delightful notes of ripe nectarine. Enjoy!

Great Sauvignon Blanc
2021 Downes Family Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon Blanc...$14.99

Suggested retail $17
"Made with the help of Master of Wine Richard Kershaw, this is a serious, well structured Sauvignon Blanc that outperforms many of its peers. Blackcurrant leaf and elderflower flavors provide lots of crunch and focus, with some added structure from partial skin contact before fermentation. 2022-25"

2023 Mount Fishtail Sauvignon Blanc Sur Lie...$16.99
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Made Sur Lie method - "Sancerre style"
(5/5 Stars) Fabulously aromatic on the nose showing crunchy apple, kiwifruit, passionfruit and lemon peel, followed by an intensely flavoursome palate offering excellent fruit power and persistency. It’s intense and concentrated with classical varietal characters that linger with loads of delectable flavours.
Rated 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A rather refined sauvignon blanc with freshness and minerality with some crushed stone. Medium-bodied. Creamy. Polished and flavorful. More like a Loire white. Drink now. Screw cap.
Rated 91/100 James Suckling

2022 Matua Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc....$12.99
Delivers a fresh, lovely mix of Key lime, mango and Meyer lemon flavors, with a touch of salted ripe melon on a sleek, juicy frame. Shows a hint of lemongrass that lingers. Drink now. 1,221,326 cases made, 760,012 cases imported.
