How are blends made?

Friday, 10 July, 2020

Have you ever enjoyed a delectable glass of TRIO Perfect Blend and found yourself asking: what is a blend? Unlike a varietal wine, blends are a mix of two or more types of grapes that can be entirely different, or even of the same strain. Thanks to this combination, it’s possible to experiment with new textures, aromas, colors and bodies.

Blending allows oenologists to create extraordinary and complex wines, as the grapes can complement one another by providing roundness and acidity. It’s also a great way to multiply aromas, given that each grape possesses its own unique and distinct smell.

There are various blending techniques, below are a few:

  • Mix the wine after fermentation, finishing the vinification process.
  • Co-fermenting the grapes, that is, to harvest the grapevines in the same vineyard and vinify them at the same time.
  • Mixing after the wine has aged.
  • Mixing the grapes at the start of vinification.

 

The multiple expressions of TRIO combine diverse grape exemplars that produce the perfect finish, giving true meaning to the art of the blend.

TRIO Merlot: An extraordinary mix of 52% Merlot, 45% Carmenere and 3% Syrah. An ideal choice to pair with pasta, meats and cheeses, given its delicious aromas that evoke red cherries and fresh plums.

TRIO Cabernet Sauvignon: Its delicious flavor is the result of a combination of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 5%Syrah. A top choice when pairing with red meats such as beef or lamb.

TRIO Chardonnay: With 87% Chardonnay, 8% Pinot Blanc and 5% Pinot Grigio, this marvellous citric blend pairs to perfection with chicken, seafood and fish.

Give them them all a try!
