What is Merlot?

Merlot is a dry dark blue-coloured wine and classed as one of the most popular red wines varietals in many markets. Merlot in French means The Little Blackbird, probably a reference to the colour of the grape. While  Merlot flavour can vary depending upon where it is grown climate-wise, you will typically get notes of blue, black and red fruits. These tasting notes are backed by undertones of vanilla, cocoa and various earth tones.

Merlot because of its softness and early ripening is a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin. Merlot is one of the primary grapes used in Bordeaux wine, and it is the most widely planted grape in the Bordeaux wine regions.
