Blends

We have started to play with potential blends for a southern Rhone style wine. Blending is both fun and nerve racking. There are often options that may improve the short term drinking of the wine at the cost of the age ability. We naturally tend to want to make a wine for the long run. Of course, this has to be balanced with the knowledge that many of our customers will want to drink the wine quickly.

Having sent a sample via my mother to a friend, we heard some great positive feedback. The only down side, he didn’t like our name. Perhaps we will pour the wine at our open house to gauge customers on both the blend and the name…
