Red Blend

Some of the world’s finest red wines are blends. In Bordeaux, France, some of the world’s most expensive red wines are a blend of primarily Cabernet and Merlot. Often winemakers will have a theme when they blend, meaning they will create a Bordeaux blend or a Rhone style blend (primarily Shiraz and Grenache). The purpose of blending wines is to create a wine that is better than a single variety wine. Cabernet is often said to be harsh, but blended with Merlot it gets a softer mouthfeel, so the serious Cabernet is blended with the fun loving Merlot, to create a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. Australia has done very well with Cabernet Shiraz blends. It has also become common for winemakers to blend a small amount of the white grape Viognier in with Shiraz, which adds color and aromatics.
