ABOUT: Merlot is loved for its black cherry flavours, supple tannins and sometimes chocolatey finish. It’s a very approachable and popular grape variety that grows exceptionally well in the Languedoc where the consistent climate allows it flourish. A lovely drop to enjoy right now, this wine will continue to improve for the next 2-3 years.
