Buy Merlot Wines Online
Merlot red wine fruit is dark blue in colour that is used as a blending grape as well as for crafting single varietal wines. The French word ‘Merle’, meaning ‘blackbird’ is thought to be the inspiration for this variety’s name owing to its dark colour. The best Merlot wine fruit is picked early when it’s soft and fleshy. This makes it a perfect blending partner for the stern, highly tannic and late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon variety. Top Merlot varietal wines are generally described as easy-drinking, smooth and well rounded. Good merlot wines give off lovely aromas of black cherry, vanilla and cedar from the nose while the soft, medium-bodied palate is full of raspberry, black cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco, graphite, mocha and vanilla flavours, supported by subtle oak nuances. Pastrami, herb roasted lamb loin chops or warm smoked chicken are some excellent Australian food matches for Merlot red wine.
