mudhouse = my favorite wine in the whole entire world

i have to start with the disclaimer that i am by no means a wine connoisseur..but i do drink enough of it to know that i LOVE sauvignon blanc by new zealand winery mud house. i first found it on the wines by the glass list at houston's on park ave and it's been my go-to wine ever since. i fell in love with the 2008, a rare find these days, but the 2009 is just as delicious. i can usually find it between $12 and $14 a bottle (don't pay the $18 whole foods is asking for it) but my favorite trick is to buy it by the case - most liquor stores offer a discount when you do it that way.

here are the notes from mud house's website: a crisp, fresh sauvignon blanc with ripe flavours of passionfruit and gooseberry. these tropical flavours blend beautifully with citrus and nettle notes and the zingy acid gives way to a long balanced finish.

is it wrong that i want a glass RIGHT. NOW.? click here to find it at a store or restaurant near you.

Oooh...we will have to try that one! Our favorite white is Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, also from New Zealand - we too, buy it in cases at Costco :)

i love kim crawford too - they're very similar so you'll definitely like mud house.

Sasha, so glad you found the blog post! I studied abroad in AUS and was lucky enough to spend a week in NZ on my way home. If only I knew about Mud House way back when!
