Discover Blended Red 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 appeallots of superripe, black fruit and no acidityusing whatever varietals would suffice.
About the Producer: Vina Vik
Viña Vic is a Chilean wine producer located in the Cachapoal Valley. The company was founded in 2004 by Norwegian entrepreneurs Carrie Vik and Alex Vik. The Vina Vik wine portfolio is a small collection of three Bordeaux red blends. Vic is an emblematic wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenere with small additions of Merlot, which will be stored in the cellar for 15 to 20 years. In 2020, Viña Vic launched a rosé wine as part of its La Pi Belle range, created as a tribute to the art of winemaking. Vic vineyards are located in the foothills of the Andes, in 12 small valleys. The company's 808-acre (327 ha) vineyards grow here a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and snow-capped mountains, cool year-round temperatures here allow the grapes to ripen while maintaining acidity levels. The architecturally designed winery features a large "water mirror" on the roof to cool the winery and keep the humidity relatively high in an energy-efficient manner. There is also an upscale hotel and restaurant on site.
