It’s Saturday which typically means cheese and wine for dinner in our house. It’s safe to say after 9 months of no soft cheeses, deli meats and wine that I’ve definitely made up for it over the last few weeks!
Last weekend our matched wine was this Petaluma Wine 2019 Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills region in South Australia – thank you for the sample bottle Dialogue PR + Communications. I believe a small percentage of the wine is barrel fermented in French oak and the remainder in stainless steel.
What’s a blend when it comes to wine? You may hear people throw that term around a bit, but what exactly does it mean?
A blend, typically refers to the fact that the wine is made from a mix of different grape varieties. Just like this sample bottle of Gatch Wine 2018 White I received recently which is a blend of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris grapes.
