Sauvignon Republic

Since Summer technically doesn’t end until late September, you need to keep stocking up on what I refer to as “patio white wines”. Well, “need” is a strong word. That said, I shan’t be corrected: you need to keep buying more white wines.

When I’m not chugging down Tinchos http://bit.ly/OSIDwK/New Age The Savvy Lush Review my go to white is Sauvignon Blanc. For my taste and for ease of purchase, it is what I gravitate toward.

In saying that, I know several of you like the Kim Crawford Marlborough County Sauvignon Blanc http://bit.ly/OJlhYz/Kim Crawford The Savvy Lush Review

. As you can see/read, I enjoy it, too. BUT, if you cannot get it on sale or over at Costco (where it’s currently $12.99), I have the next best thing and it’s right in your local Trader Joe’s.

Let me introduce you to Sauvignon Republic, a Marlborough County Sauvignon Blanc. It’s fruity, it’s citrusy it’s crisp and delicious without being too light or too heavy. A nice, versatile wine that pairs as easily as it sips. I was stunned at how great it tasted. I was even more stunned that it only set me back $7.99!

Since this Republic gem makes me feel as if I’m getting away with something, I deem this the “Savvy Lush Skank”. Go ‘head- drink a bottle and pinch yourself. Enough said.
