Hill of Content, Benjamin's Blend, 2004

This wine comes from Western Australia, and it is an interesting and refreshing change. First of all, there is no taste of oak whatsoever. Second, it blends Chardonnay (52%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%), and Semillon (18%). It has the distinctive taste of each of these varietals, including a distinct citrus taste and the grassy taste you usually associate with Sauvignon Blanc. Lively and refreshing, this wine captured my attention largely because it is different.

It also comes with a screw top. The cost is between $10.00 and $13.00 depending on where you buy it.

Recommended -- buy it if you see it. But it is not worth expending large amounts of energy to try to find it.

It would be great for a party!

My Dad gave me a bottle of this wine for Christmas. He found it in the back of his wine cellar and had no idea where he got it from or when. Now it's in my possession! YaY me!
