Bordeaux Blends

Bordeaux Blend is a term paying homage to the traditional wines from the famed region in France where at least two of the classic varietals are blended together. The black currant structured cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc’s fresh fruitiness, plumy merlot and sometimes smaller amounts of difficult to ripen petit verdot and malbec are the classic ingredients. Judges were looking for wines with depth and complexity, a balance of fruit and structure and a long thought-provoking finish. We tasted an outstanding range of wines and I am so pleased to see the quality of Bordeaux blends from BC – Culmina’s R&D red blend won Best in Class. Congratulations! Juanita Roos
