Concannon 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Concannon 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, $9.99, 84 points, was a pale gray/green and thin copper color.
Smells of overripe cantaloupe and soft citrus were not inspiring.
Light-bodied (not typically crisp) with good acidity managed only a just passable white table wine rating for me; not a throw-away wine, but one I'll not seek-out again.
Citrus flavors were one dimensional and nondescript, and were followed by soft melon notes carried by a rather texturally round mouth-feel, but they weren't altogether refreshing or tasty.
The finish saved this Sauvignon Blanc; Gooseberry, lemon-grass, ginger, and a well integrated 13.5% alcohol were quite good.
I bought this white wine at the Fresh Market in Bedford.
