    Hewitson LuLu Sauvignon Blanc 2012
    Sold Out $9.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Way over-rated, IMHO. This is a very one dimensional wine. Lacks typical varietal characteristics for a sauvignon blanc, e.g., gooseberry, herbaceous notes. It's crisp, but that's about all it's got going for it. Unfortunately I bought five bottles based on the Australian Wine Companion rating (92).

    Seghesio Pinot Grigio 2011
    Sold Out $31.99
    2014 vintage available for $22.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    Doesn't live up to the WE review and score (89), IMHO. Unable to detect the fruit of "sweet melon" or "white peaches" in the winemaker's notes. Very one-dimensional, overall. Yes, tart and acidic, like WE taster said, but more like a simple Vinho Verde, so no value, even when on sale. Not sure about the "lime," either; the best I could do was "white grapefruit."
