Starborough Sauvignon Blanc 2008

This New Zealand white is fairly typical of the variety. It comes on with a grassy nose and delivers citrus and tropical fruit flavors. It's a bit on the thin side, lacks the mineral flintiness which characterizes the better Marlboroughs and has a very short finish. Certainly not bad, but even at the sale price of $11.99 you can do better.

Which ones would you say are better? I actually really liked this one, so I'd be happy to be surprised with a better wine at a comparable price. I quoted your thoughts on it on my blog today.
