Firestone Sauvignon Blanc is the latest wine to land on our “Top 10 Budget Wines” list. At $6 – $8 per bottle, it’s no wonder it landed on our “Top 10 Budget Wines” list.
On the spectrum of red or white, most of us here at FoodieandWine.com land about 1/4 of the way from white. he only thing that beats a glass of crisp, light and slightly sweet white wine, especially in the Southern California heat, is a whole bottle! You can be sure the bottle is gone just as quickly as sports fans are when their team (ahem San Diego Padres) is losing come 9th inning.
Before my palette and pocketbook evolved, I bought Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling 99% of the time. To date, it’s still my favorite budget white wine, but now I like to mix things up with food pairings. Plus, my local Costco stopped carrying the Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling and replaced most of the light, sweet whites with Chardonnay. Something about the areas “demographics.” If you read in between the lines it means the “really awesome peeps with good taste in budget white wine don’t live in the region”. Clearly he didn’t realize FoodieandWine.com could deplete his stock.
The latest white wine to hit our “Top 10 Budget Wines” list is this Firestone Sauvignon Blanc.
Firestone Sauvignon Blanc has notes of tropical fruits and citrus. It’s like hosting a Hawaiian Luau in your mouth. Think passion fruit, grapefruit, green melon and a bit lemon and lime zest. Next time you can’t make it to Hawaii, put on your swimsuit and shades and crack open a bottle on Firestone Sauvignon Blanc.
Your mouth will thank you for the party.
