It is a much-loved varietal, due to the richness of the fruit and the absence of drying tannins typically found in Cabernets. Merlot is generally aged in oak barrels but sometimes in stainless steel to allow the silky fruit flavours to caress the palate. Merlot is dry, light to medium-bodied, silky and smooth, slightly rich; some youthful tannins may be present in year one. You can expect a bouquet and flavours of plum, red berries, blueberry and spice, and you may find Merlot is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to soften the muscle of Cabernet. So why not order Merlot wine online and enjoy a cozy, mellow and seductive night in!
