Rage Against Suburban Zombie-ism

Here's another recent Trader Joe's find for what I believe is Kono's (New Zealand) Sauvignon Blanc and not the Pinot Gris, as per the photo. The bottle looks the same, it was a White by Kono, I just didn't take note of the variety before I discarded the bottle it was that bad.
First whiff of this White was a bouquet of fromage. Gross, ick, blech. Being Asian, the mere scent of cheese is an automatic turn-off! The wine itself wasn't particularly sweet, but off-dry. Not my thing at all.
I'm normally a Red gal, but seeing how it's still Summer, I decided to go with a White! I choose this particular bottle for 2 reasons: 1) There was a "Staff Picks" sign just above it (total bullshit) and 2) I overheard some guy, from Australia, who sounded knowledgeable, going on about how good New Zealand Whites are (not this one!).
