Dr Desert Flower and I have had alot of cheese and hummus weekend afternoons, chicken dinners, and lighter fare that pairs better with white wine than it does with red wine. And since we do not love grassy chardonnays, or grape-fruity Sauvignon Blancs (as many New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs often are), finding delicious and inexpensive white wines can be a challenge.
BrisAndes from Barons de Rothschild Lafite, made in Chile's Casablanca Valley. We did not detect "pineapple and lime" as the label said, but there were some citrus notes, and a nice sharp acidity. It didn't stab us in the mouth, but it was enjoyable to drink. And from Trader Joes, it was all of $6. I've had some "eh, so so" wines from Rothschild before, but I suspended my skepticism and was pleasantly surprised.
