Historians claim that Merlot was first mentioned in the late 18th century, but it was not until later that the grape was given its modern name which comes from "Merlau," a black bird that is particularly fond of this varietal. It was found to be an offspring of Cabernet Franc and another grape, Magdeleine Noire des Charentes, a grape no longer commercially produced. Merlot is the most widely planted grape in all of France. With its characteristic ripe cherry and blueberry flavors on the palate, rounded out by spice and soft tannins, this French Merlot is a fabulous wine for anytime! Merlot grapes can ripen earlier than other varietals while still producing amazing wines, which is one reason they have become so popular worldwide! This wine kit is enhanced by GenuWine Winery dried grape skins and French White Oak (Quercus Robur) from the Limousin forest in central France, and also includes a varietal enhancing yeast for impeccable fermentation. Experience a true, full French Merlot with this limited kit from RJ Spagnols!
