Tasting Notes

Merlot - Syrah 2019 from Anastasia Fragou estate has a deep purple colour with ruby hues.

On the nose it’s juicy with blackcurrant, liquorice and blueberry jam.

On the mouth it’s spicy and warm. Grippy with nicely integrated tannins.

On the palate the juiciness from the blackcurrant and blueberries is back.

The finish is medium long.

Dark blue-colored variety of wine-making grape

Merlot is a dark blue–colored wine grape variety that can be used to produce both blending and varietal wines. Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French word for a blackbird, which is most likely a reference to the grape’s color. Merlot is a common grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which appears to be higher in tannin, due to its softness and “fleshiness” combined with its earlier ripening.
