Veramonte Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2006

For a refreshing, affordable, easy-to-drink deck wine, it's hard to beat the Veramonte Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2006. It's light, fresh and crisp, with uncomplicated flavors of lime, straw and a touch of pineapple. At refrigerator temperature it's a little tart, so let it warm up for 20 minutes before serving (in fact, it's a good practice to do that with all white wines).

This is a nice Sauv Blanc that won't squirt you in the eye, stain your pants or make you wonder if it's time to change the kitty litter. And at just $9, it's a good thing to keep on hand for impromptu get-togethers on warm summer nights. (Keep some goat cheese and crackers on hand, too!)
