From a winery with a track record for good value comes this well-priced Sauvignon Blanc. Round and easy to like, with plump peach, tangy citrus, anise and stewed apple tones carrying through the finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. Best Buy.

Well priced, and easy to find, this full-bodied Spanish white is right on time for summer sipping. Rich and smooth, it offers almond, pear and creamy flavors, with enough acidity for balance. Bigger in body than flavor, but distinctive and appealing. Drin —Thomas Matthews
