The varietal finds its beginnings being planted most famously along the Right Bank of Bordeaux. Often blended with Cabernet, it provides delicious soft, supple plum and cherry tones. With bottle age Merlot will develop a chocolaty edge.
The McLeish Estate Merlot has been a cornerstone in our portfolio for over 30 years. Produced to be a fresh medium bodied style that can be perfectly paired tomato based pasta, Chinese plum duck and light blue cheese.
