The aim of the study was to investigate the quality of blended wines produced from Vitis vinifera L. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon blanc grapes. Wines were processed according to accepted conventional methods for white and red wines. Blended wines were produced with different ranges (25, 50, 75 and 100%) of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon blanc wines. Produced wines were evaluated for total phenols (mg/L), total tartaric esters (mg/L caffeic acid), total flavonols (mg/L quercetin), chemometric parameters such as D280%, D420%, D520%, D620%, dA%, CD%, T, CI%, R%, Y% and B%, CIELAB parameters, protein, total and volatile acidity. Analyses on an n-dimensional scale demonstrated the relationships among the wines of different grape origins and different blending ratios. On the basis of these differences, two main groups were plotted using principal component analysis and cluster analysis. The results demonstrate the possibilities of optimizing wines on the basis of defined parameters. Copyright (c) 2015 The Institute of Brewing & Distilling
