Celebrate Sauvignon Blanc day today for from $15 to $25

See also

In recent years I've become a fan of sauvignon blanc wines. They have such a crisp, dry, fruity nose and astringent taste (see, I just used the word "nose" when I meant the wine's aroma - the winemakers' vernacular was bound to start rubbing off on me).

And since I recently received some samples to try, I suggest you try one of these wines for under $15:

And here are four suggestions for Sauvignon Blancs under $20. And in this category do not forget one of my favorites - Goldwater sauvignon blanc. Loved their 2011 vintage; no reason to think their 2013 isn't just as delicious.

And here's one for about $25. Domaine de la Perriere Sancerre 2013 - 3 months "aged on the lees" and 3 months in the bottle from that long-time Loire Valley winery. Drink this with goat cheese, fish or seafood - or all of them.

So go out and have a glass of fruity, astringent, satisfying Sauvignon Blanc to celebrate today. In case you need to run down to your local wine merchant, here are a few locations in Chicago where you can likely procure a good choice:
