Traditionally Shiraz, Merlot, and Pinot Noir have been blended to produce what is known as the Bordeaux blend.
Typically, Shiraz has a dark fruit taste with a spicy, peppery finish. Merlot is not too sweet and not too dry either, and it has a fruity taste, it typically has flavours of watermelon, cherry, plum, and strawberry, and it is medium-bodied. Pinot Noir usually has a berry or black cherry taste and is on the lighter side of red. Pinot Noir usually tends to not be too dry however the older the Pinot Noir, the drier it tends to be.
Dry Red is usually having no residual sugar and is not sweet. It is always compared to the Bordeaux style of wine. This is a wine with a beginning to the end on the palate and it is why we chose to blend. The wine will develop even more complexity over the years.
