Merlot grapes produce a ruby red wine with soft tannins, smooth acidity and a bouquet of flavors and aromas of good leather, spices, vanilla, cherries and tobacco.

Merlot wine is popular with people trying to get accustomed to drier, more complex red wines because of its other characteristics, like low tannins which make it easier to drink than other red wines.
The softer characteristics of Merlot with the fruity flavors make it a red wine that's well-suited to lighter foods that won't overwhelm the flavors of the wine.

It is the perfect accompaniment for chicken and other light meats as well as lightly-spiced dark meats.

Enjoy it between 16 – 19°C.
