In need of a great Sauvignon Blanc or similar wine available in New England.

I love a great glass of Sav. Blanc.. but I'm in need of something different. I love strong floral or citrius notes. I'm partial to Simi, Rock Rabbit and Chateau St. Michelle. I don't want to break the bank unless its worth it. Can you help? I live near Portsmouth, NH and need to be able to purchase it around here.

    You should try a Gewurztraminer.

      Ditto the votes for Nobilo & Kim Crawford. My SB go-tos.

        my favorite Sav. Blanc are White Haven or Kim Crawford, both from New Zealand. From Cali I would reccomend, Franciscan or Folie a Deux. All of these are $20 or less. If you want to go a bit crazy, Provenance, Far Niente, or Napa Cellars are all fantastic and all under $50.

          Cartlidge and Browne's Dancing Crow Vineyard SB....just great SB with a touch of citrus and super clean..no acidity

          Dashwood from NZ...big grapefruit and acidity.

          Both around $10

            Cakebread is around $20 and very good. I've also enjoyed Indaba (South Africa) and I think it is around $12. I can't remember the flavor profile though.

              my fave Sauv Blanc is Nobilo, about $11/bottle. Widely available (a Marlborough/NZ)

                I'd repost this on the wine board...

                For everyday drinking, I dig Babich SB, from Marlborough. It's extremely citrusy and fragrant, all for a whopping $12. It's an easy drinker that I've seen all over New England.
