Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2007 – $11.99
I love experimenting around with wine. I have some knowledge of wine but mostly I just like tasting various bottles and deciding what I like. For me, wine falls into three categories – “TV wine” (under $6.00), “dinner wine” ($6.00-15.00), and “special occasion wine” ($15.00 and up). I usually drink TV wine when I need to unwind after work, while watching the latest episode of SVU. I break into my stash of dinner wine when cooking for friends or attending an event where I need a hostess gift. I reserve special occasion wines for holidays and celebration dinners.
One of the many things I like about shopping at Trader Joe’s is that I can find some great TV and dinner wines for reasonable prices. Recently, I have been on a quest for a white dinner wine that I can pair with various summer dishes. I prefer new world white wines that are light and fruity.
Nobilo Marlborough 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is the prefect Sauvignon Blanc for the upcoming warm weather. This New Zealand native is light and fruity with elements of grapefruit, lemon and melon. It would pair well with fruit, pasta, chicken, and light cheeses. It is available at Trader Joe’s, Bev Mo, and Cost Plus World Market.
