Student blend 2
Uptown Blend was made out of 2 grape varieties, Chardonnay and Riesling. Our last formula and the one we ended up using was a blend of all three wines given to us.
At first we anticipated 90% Chardonnay and 10% Riesling and we were satisfied at the taste of this blend. We also wanted to experiment more blends so we can have for options. We had 5 different formulas at the end. Our 6th and final attempt, we had our winning blend for the menu. The formula is 10% Riesling, 40% 2nd Chardonnay and 50% 1st Chardonnay. The blend looked bright was a pale yellow color. The smell of the blend is fruity with smells of pears, apricots, and oak. The blend was low in dryness and good acidity. When you taste it, you taste the oak from the Chardonnays and the citrus fruit from the Riesling. We believe it is a well balance wine and lingers a little bit. The after taste is smooth and leaves a nice sensation on the tongue. There was one blend that was our least favorite, which was 90% Riesling and 10% 1st Chardonnay. This blend was very fruity and oaky. It followed with an even stronger oak after taste. We anticipated to try 2 blends but instead we used three. This left us with a wine with no vintage.
