"This wine is light and zippy like a New Zealand style Sauvignon Blanc, but without that slap you upside the head green grassiness that some people (like me!) find overwhelming.  AJA's Sauv Blanc is pleasantly herbal with lots of citrus and tropical fruits.  And at under $20/bottle, this is a no brainer for stocking up for the summer. "
