The Merlot grape is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It
is known for its soft, velvety texture, and medium to full-bodied nature.
Our Merlot is matured for 18 months in 2 nd and 3 rd filled French Oak, followed by a further
10 months in a large French Oak Vat at the Glen Carlou winery. This lends vanilla notes and
maturity to this juicy and rich Merlot.
