La Francette Merlot NV (6 x 750mL) Vin de france

Merlot is a dark blue-coloured wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. The name Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French name for the blackbird, probably a reference to the colour of the grape. Its softness and "fleshiness", combined with its earlier ripening, makes Merlot a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin.

Winery Tasting Notes

Smooth soft, silky and fruity with easy tannins. Notes of ripe dark fruit, chocolate and underscored with hints of Black Cherry, Raspberry, and ripe plums.

A most enjoyable drink devoid of the sharpness often found in new world Merlots and devoid of any bitterness that sometimes accompanies it.
