Boatshed Bay Sav Blanc - can get it around the $15 mark
Tupari Pinot Grigio (their Sav Blanc is okay) - a bit dearer at about $25
Pear Tree Sav Blanc - generally around $20
Or go for something nice with a quirky label - my favourite being Squealing Pig Sav Blanc at around the $15-$20
If you want cheaper, Peter Lehmann Pinot Grigio is lovely at about $12.

I am really enjoying http://m.danmurphys.com.au/product/DM_9037...-semillon#index at the moment.
I know nothing about wine though.

When DS was in primary we bought a bottle of wine from the region he was born in.
We just got DD's teacher the same (she wasn't born in a wine producing region). Both kids sewed a Christmas material bottle cover (that was stressful part for me lol)

Please buy Aussie wines and support the Aussie wine industry!
If you buy a SB from a cool climate region from either the 2011 or 2012 vintage, you should be right. SB starts to look a bit daggy once its passed three years old.

Thanks Ladies, you are the best.
And those who mentioned T'Gallant - are you Peninsula girls?
