Kono Sauvignon Blanc 2010





Wine, how I love thee – Let me count the ways.


I love how you make me feel better after a long day at work.


The list goes like this :

1. Indy’s smile
2. Husbands Kiss
3. Kick butt bottle of white









I love how you make Four Weddings & Say Yes to the Dress a fabulous Friday night.


I love your bottle? I love wine bottles, I love the cork – at least I think I do because I have saved at least one thousand of them!



I also love Trader Joe’s. Joe hooks me up with cheap wonders. So I have one for you!









KONO Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough 2010

A blend of fruits from the Awatere, Waihopai, and Lower Wairau Valleys gives this Sauvignon Blanc the classic Marlborough fruit burst with great palate weight and a clean, acid finish.


This wine is available at Trader Joe's for $7.99


Try it this weekend! It gets a standing ovation from me and two somersaults from my daughter…that means it is super good.

Have a "smashing" weekend.

OK GF - I am going to pick this one up FOR SURE when I go to TJ's - which is once a week!!!! (I love it too for the wine $)

I save corks too...it has become an illness!

When I was in Us, I used to shop at trader joe's . I love that chain and this wine too:=)

I wish there was a Trader Joe's near me. Lovely words and photos =)

I wish I could find this wine here... Collecting corks, my boyfriend always wants to keep them, but I throw them away (we have enough mess)! ;-P

Cheers,

Rosa

I save corks too! I keep mine in an old glass wine jug! Great post!

Thanks for the tip. Don't you just love Joe and his fab wine?! My fave right now at TJ's is Vivace pinot grigio in the Italian section. It's light and sparkling and delicious. And around $4.95.
Also, I totally think you should open that dessert/wine bar! Brilliant! If you're ever in Los Olivos/Santa Ynez area you HAVE to visit Saarloos tasting room/cupcakery - you would love it!

No Trader Joe's here but I'll try to find something similar. I'm looking forward to chilling out and wine (even though I've got work to do).

Wow--two somersaults from your daughter...she must really love it. I was more of a Merlot girl at her age myself:)

Leesha said...

I love my wine with Amazing Race & Ghost Hunters. ;)

The very first time I went wine tasting I fell in love with the Sauvignon Blanc they served. Since then I have really fallen for the Soft Red by Ste. Chapelle, its roughly the same price as the wine you mentioned here. Whats even neater is that is a local wine (yay!) however, I do wish we had a Trader Joes here so I could check out there selection!

Taylor said...

Trader Joes is one of my favorite wine stores, but I've never tried this bottle. Adding it to the shopping list :)

scrambledhenfruit said...

Sigh. The closest Trader Joe's is an hour and a half away. This does sound like a lovely wine though. (and I keep corks too- haven't figured out why yet)

Elizabeth said...

Trader Joe's is awesome... as is four weddings... Sounds like a lovely Friday night to me!

theUngourmet said...

What a fun label! I love white wine in spring and summer and I love picking up fun wines from TJ's! Thanks for the review. Your photos are awesome too!

Raina said...

I love a good glass of wine too but never really now which ones are good. Thanks for letting me know about this one. I have a TJ's real close but for some reason never thought to try their wines:)

Jenn said...

Love Trader Joe's wine selections! Will be looking for this one next time I go!

Marina said...

My family has its own vineyard, but I was never into wine.. Who knows, maybe I will like it more when I get older.. :)

Oh my god, how could I have forgotten about Four Weddings and Say Yes to the Dress?! I know what I'm doing this weekend while my husband is fixing his motorcycle... Grabbing a bottle of this wine and watching my shows, ha! :)

Nicole said...

I love Trader Joe's too-- why does mine not sell wine??? hmmm.....

jaimeb said...

Once again, I'm sad we're TJ-less in Colorado -- this looks like my kinda bottle of goodness! Have a great weekend, friend. ~Jaime

I love Trader Joe's! I can count on the fact that I will discover a new wine every time for a great price, you can't beat that. I also love drinking said wine on Friday and Saturday evenings. This one will have to go on my list since it sounds fantastic with the warm weather we've been having!

XingyMingy said...

Hehe, wine is definately the way to start a weekend! ;) I've never tried this wine before but I don't think I can get it in the UK, but I shall look into New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc varieties here :)

Eliana said...

Trader Joe makes me grow more fond of wine everyday. Love the inexpensive yet delicious finds.
