Discover Blended White Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal—lots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity—using whatever varietals would suffice.

About the Producer: Alamos Winery

Alamos is an Argentine wine producer located in the Mendoza wine region. It is one of the four leading wine brands in the Catena family, producing a small collection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Bonard and Syrah wines. Historically, the Catena family has played an important role in Malbec's rebirth in Argentina, leading to the family's position as one of the largest and most successful wine producers in the country. Consequently, Malbec became the flagship wine called Alamos Selección. It is cultivated in the best vineyards that make up the company's farms and, before launching, it ages in French and American oak barrels for 16 to 18 months. The grapes come mainly from vineyards owned by the Catena family in Lujan de Cuyo and Valle de Uco, while other varieties come from local producers. The location of these vineyards in the foothills of the Argentine Andes creates a unique growing environment, where altitude and sandy rocky soils combine to create quality viticulture. The Lujan de Cuyo vineyard reaches 3,500 feet (1,060 meters) above sea level, while the Valle de Uco vineyards are cultivated at even higher altitudes, reaching 5,000 feet (1,500 m).
