MERLOT

Red wine online shopping searches often leads to the ever-popular wine made from the Merlot grape. A dark blue-colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. As an earlier ripening grape Merlot has become a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin where it adds softness and body.

Along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, Merlot is one of the best French wine grapes used in red Bordeaux wine and it is the most widely planted grape in the wine region of Bordeaux. Often, the best French red wine is, or includes, Merlot. It’s flexibility has helped to make it one of the world's most planted grape varieties.

Merlot is often a top outcome in red wine online internet searches. It is made across the globe and tends to be made for 2 types of Merlot advocates; internationalists like the emphasis on the late harvesting to produce riper, inky, purple colored wines that are full in body. Plush, velvety and softer on the palate with plum and blackberry fruit aromas. The traditionalists prefer the harvesting of Merlot earlier to produce more medium-bodied wines with lower alcohol levels. This style shows fresher red fruit flavors of raspberries and strawberries but in cooler years produces wines that display leafy and vegetal notes.

  8. Bodegas Penafiel 'Baron de Filar' Reserva 2013 [Tempranillo-Merlot-Cabernet]

    A first-class high flying wine. 15 months of barrel ageing for offering mature tannins, without losing the spark of the fruit and its' alluringly deep red color.

    Intense black-cherry colour with good depth of colour and hardly any signs of evolution. Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality.
