The name comes from the Occitan word “Merlot”, which means “young blackbird” (“merle” is the French word for several kinds of thrushes, including blackbirds); the name was thought to have been given either because of the grape’s beautiful dark-blue colour, or the blackbirds’ fondness for grapes. The softness and fleshiness of Merlot makes it a popular grape for blending.

The vines planted in Alluvial soils with good drainage, results in small concentrated berries, which delivers a well balanced wine that offers intense fruit flavours.
