Bordeaux Style: A French Bordeaux Blend consists of the five big grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon and or Merlot are usually playing the lead role, while Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot act as the supporting cast. These three grapes help to add structure, colour and body in various amounts. Bordeaux Blend typically but not exclusively, uses at least three of the five grapes to be labeled as such. Each year the percentage of each grape in the blend can vary and the winemaker can include more of the variety that excelled in that particular vintage.

Food Pairings: Bordeaux Blend is excellent with beef, lamb, and grilled veal, game such as pheasant and poultry such as grilled turkey. Other good accompaniments are couscous, tandoori spices and pâtés.

White Bordeaux Blend is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon. This subtle wine will surprise you with its aromatic bouquet and complexity on the palate. Thanks to its perfectly balanced acidity, it leaves a lasting impression of delicacy and fruit.

Food Pairings: This easy to drink wine is delicious with grilled fish, shell fish or on its own as an aperitif.
