White blended wines are made from a blend of green grapes rather than a single varietal. Winemakers can modify the wines characteristics by bending varietals, a more complex process than producing a single varietal wine.

Basically, the blending of grapes, whether it’s different vintages or grape types, is to add more density to the flavour and texture of a wine.

Some of New Zealand’s greatest white wines are made from a blend of grapes.

Millton Te Arai Chenin Blanc 2016

$30.00 $28.50

With aromas of fresh lime zest and fragrant gardenias, this wine is taut and vibrant in a way that will show its’ maturity over a very long period of time. Flavours of fine wool and bush honey are enhanced by quince and ripe bouche pear aromas with a tingling aftertaste.
