Western Australia "Benjamin's Blend"
Green apple, honeydew melon and white grape create quite an event in this big blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes from Australian negociant John Larchet. But while the bouquet has a distinctly sticky smell of carnival cotton candy, fruit and sugar are only one side of the equation. A creamy surface and crisp ending make Benjamin's Blend a mouthful of content and a ready companion for garlicky barbecue shrimp or this summer's spicy crawfish boils.
