Flip flops. White wine. They kind of go hand in hand, don't they? You've brought out the flip flops for this season, so now it's time to dig up some white wine – sauvignon blanc to be exact.
One sip and you'll be carried away by the zesty freshness that is typical of a Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The marriage of citrus – lemon, lime, grapefruit – and herbal notes will brighten up even the cloudiest of days and send your tastebuds soaring. Not to worry, the slight mineral finish will surely bring you back to earth, although you might have to refill your glass to experience this lively dance all over again.
At $7.99 a bottle, this sauvignon blanc is truly a bargain, and you would honestly never know by the taste that it's so value-priced. But be sure to pick up a bottle soon at your local Harrisburg-area state store, as this one's on Chairman's Selection and may sell out quick.
