The blending of these noble varieties continues to offer great potential for complexity and depth of characters. Like blending and matching food the very essence of finding the ideal varietals and blending the right percentage of each variety based on the vintage year brings a style and consistency. Integration of these individual varietal aspects offers flavour profiles not found by the use of a single variety.
