Merlot is very versatile, you find it in your favourite everyday reds as well as in some of the most expensive wines in the world. It has seen significant growth in a relatively short lifespan, becoming a red that is favoured across the globe. It has a plush texture , full and smooth and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. "Merlau" was a term used to describe blackbirds in the Bordeaux region. It was likely adopted to describe Merlot due to the grapes’ dark skin or possibly due to the blackbird's fondness for eating the grapes straight from the vine. It's another French varietal that's being championed in Australia with local winemakers applying a unique spin , the most sophisticated examples come from the cooler regions in Western Australia, such as Margaret River.
