Discover Blended White Wine Wines
Blended white wine has been around for more than 2500 years. In this situation, "white blend" refers to any white wine that incorporates more than one white grape varietal in the final product, yet some white blends, while containing numerous grapes, can have their own designations as recognized wines.
Blended white wines differ in flavor, body, acidity, and alcohol content, but as a general rule, they should be served with lighter fare. White blends are made from a variety of white grapes that are typically crushed and fermented separately before being blended. Finding the perfect mix for a novel blend frequently necessitates blending trials in which the winemaker drinks the wine and makes suggestions. Traditional white mixes can, of course, follow age-old formulas like White Bordeaux, Sauternes, or White Rioja. Many white mixes have a higher bottle aging potential than most varietal whites. The flavors vary as well, but most white blends will include citrus and white fruit undertones. White mixes should be served chilled, just like any other white wine.
