We love this Aussie recipe with a chilled Aussie bottle of the Murdoch Hill Sauvignon Blanc!   Click HERE to grab this bottle for just $21.99

If you like NZ Sauvignon Blanc, even though they can sometimes be a little too grapefruity for you, then we think you'll love this one from neighboring Australia.  Murdoch Hills is a small family owned estate in the Adelaide Hills region of Australia.   A vibrant and bright pale white wine with notes of aromatic stone and tropical fruits on the nose. This Sauvignon Blanc carries the signature characteristics of the Adelaide Hills’ style with a clean and crisp palate of gooseberries and citrus fruits, followed by delicate acidity and a complementing mineral finish.
