FIND THE BEST AMERICAN MERLOT IN THE PHILIPPINES
Like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot is also a black grape variety. It gives wines that are less aromatic, with less intense flavours and lighter tannin and acidity than Cabernet Sauvignon, but generally with more body and higher alcohol. Flavours typically fall into one of two groups, depending on how ripe the grapes are. The common international style, made from grapes grown in hot climates like some parts of California or over-ripe grapes grown in moderate climates, show a black fruit character (blackberry, black plum, black cherry), full body, medium to low acidity, high alcohol, and medium levels of gentle tannins. Some super-ripe versions display fruitcake and chocolate flavours. Less common, is a more elegant style, possible in moderate, or cooler climates, showing a red fruit character (strawberry, red berry, plum), some herbal notes (mint), and a little more tannin and acidity. Like Cabernet Sauvignon, the best Merlot wines are often aged in oak, gaining spicy and oaky flavours (vanilla, coffee).
