When it comes to Merlot wine, there’s a captivating range of options to explore. From the elegant to the robust, Merlot offers a spectrum of flavours and styles that wine enthusiasts appreciate. Here are five outstanding Merlot wines that deserve a place on your palate.

Château Malartic-Lagravière Red Blend

One of the gems from Bordeaux, the Chateau Malartic Lagraviere Red Blend is a Merlot-led masterpiece.

Blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this wine embodies the finesse and structure of Pessac-Léognan terroir. Expect rich plum and blackcurrant and blackberry flavours harmonised with subtle earthy notes.

This Merlot wine’s velvety tannins make it a delightful companion for hearty dishes.

Twomey Merlot

Hailing from California’s renowned Napa Valley, Twomey’s Merlot is a standout expression of New World winemaking.

Crafted with precision, this Merlot showcases lush dark fruit flavours layered with hints of roasting coffee and violets. Its soft texture and lingering finish make Twomey Merlot a versatile choice, whether paired with roast lamb or savoured on its own.

Tenuta Luce Lavite Lucente Red Blend

The Lavite Lucente from Tenuta Luce in Tuscany marries Merlot with Sangiovese, creating a wine of exceptional character.

This Red Blend is a celebration of Italian craftsmanship, offering a blend of dried blackberry, vanilla, and fruitcake. The Merlot component adds a plush texture, making Lavite Lucente a delightful Merlot wine choice for Italian cuisine lovers.

Fantinel La Roncaia Fusco Merlot

From the Nimis Hills in Italy, the La Roncaia Fusco showcases Merlot’s expressive side. This single-varietal Merlot boasts a bouquet of red currants, plums, and a touch of Mediterranean herbs.

Its well-integrated tannins and vibrant acidity derive from the 18-year aging in oak barriques, making it a versatile companion for grilled meats or aged cheeses.

Beringer, a Californian icon, presents the Founder’s Estate Merlot—a testament to the region’s Merlot prowess.

This wine exudes ripe berry flavours complemented by soft tannins and notes of spice with dark chocolate, making it approachable and food-friendly. Whether paired with pasta dishes or enjoyed with friends, Beringer’s Merlot is a classic representation of the varietal’s charm.
