September 2009 - Focus on Blending Wine
An important characteristic determining the flavour and character of a wine is the grape variety it is produced from. There are thousands of grape varieties contributing to a vast array of different wine styles with each variety having its own distinct flavours and characteristics. Varieties can be used uniquely to make a wine, in which case the wine is known as a varietal, or collectively with other varities, when the wine is known as a blend. We've focused here on a few winemaking regions that famously employ blends to explain some of the background behind how and why blends are used.
