We're practically giving this spicy, citrus Sauv Blanc away. It's delicious and only $5.99. What else do you want us to say?

2007 Slipstream Sauvignon Blanc Western Australia ($9.99-$12.99 Elsewhere) ($5.99)

From Stephen Tanzer's IWC: "Light gold. Spicy lime, lemon, white peach and mineral aromas, with a kiss of jasmine; avoids the herbaceous quality of most Southern Hemisphere versions of the variety. Clean and brisk, offering racy citrus zest and peach skin flavors along with dusty quinine and honeysuckle. Finishes clean and brisk." And from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc comes from low yields of 2 tons per acre and was tank-fermented. Medium straw-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of fresh herbs, citrus, and gooseberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied wine with round, concentrated flavors, good depth, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish." (08/08) Dan Pannell makes this wine at Picardy in Western Australia with fruit sourced from the cool Pemberton region. The wine is crisp and clean with aromas of citrus, herb and honeysuckle. On the palate, there is a wonderful creamy texture with mouthwatering acidity and a long, refreshing finish. An absolute steal. (Jim Chanteloup, K&L Aussie wine buyer)
