We Told You This Email Showed A Lot of Skin...

The brand new Selection International with Grape Skins is one of the most exciting lines of wine kits available at Just Fine Wine. These 6-8 week wines are "country of origin" kits with excellent varietal character, bold flavours and aromas as well as full-bodied tannins, all in a wine that drinks well young while also rewarding patience.

Just Fine Wine is extremely excited about the new Selection International with Grape Skins. We're even more excited about finding out how much more amazing they are going to be after some oak barrel aging. And you can too. Space is available for Australian Petit Verdot with Grape Skins and Chilean Malbec Shiraz with Grape Skins.

Spots are extremely limited and tend to fill up very quickly. Don't miss this great opprtunity to enjoy these spectacular new wines to their fullest extent.

Art of the Blend

Imagine if you will that we lived in a world of one - monosyllabic, single colours and smells. This would not be a world most of us would willfully choose, yet when we talk about wine, many consumers seek out 'varietal' wines, even though numerous studies confirm we actually prefer blended wines.

GrapesSome of the most sought after, expensive and longest lived wines are crafted from blends - see Bordeaux and Champagne. So what possible advantages can a winemaker seek from blending different grapes? The most obvious advantage is that it allows winemakers the ability to improve on the finished product by adding more complexity to their wines and the final balance is less left to the mercy of nature. By controlling the final sweetness, body, tannins, acidity etc. a winemaker can also control the overall age-ability of the wine. Ultimately the finished blend is greater than the sum of it parts as blending allows a winemaker the freedom to select the best grapes from multiple growers in an area or even from different regions altogether, like Winexpert's Selection International Australian Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre.

Arguably the greatest reason for blending wines is the freedom of expression it offers the winemaker. No longer bound by the shackles and limitations of a single grape variety or even regional restrictions, the winemaker is free to construct a masterpiece, possibly unlike anything else on the market. Winexpert has accomplished many such masterpieces through the art of blending. A recent notable expression was the hugely popular Selection Limited Edition Pacifica White.
