The 2012 Mandala Yarra Valley Merlot (Back Vintage Release) Story
Merlot grapes are dark blue-colored and popular as both a blending grape due to its softer consistency compared to Cabernet, as well as a standalone variety due to its pleasing texture and weight. As the most popular and widely planted varietal in France, it calls Bordeaux home but is planted in wine regions across the world. The name 'Merlot' derives from 'Merle', which is French for Blackbird!
