Wines by Grape

Merlot

Merlot is a very popular red wine grape variety with big red and black fruit flavours of raspberries, ripe strawberries, plum and blackberry, giving the wine a softer, more ‘plush’ taste and texture. It is invaluable in the production or red wines from Bordeaux, particularly those from the right-bank areas of Pomerol and St.Emilion, where it helps to provide nicely coloured wines, soft in fruit and capable of great richness.

Merlot has proven to be very successful as a single grape variety in Chile and is often blended together with the Cabernet Sauvignon grape adding a velvety quality to wines that may otherwise be hard and austere.
