Merlot is a grape from Southern France. It is generally blended with cabernet sauvignon and tannat. Its combination with tannat has been considered a real discovery and achievement. The Uruguayan specialists have acclimated and moderated the taste and acid of the most popular grape in the country. Merlot manages to grant the right touch of softness to tannat in order to harmonize its sharpness and its hard body, both regarding aspect and aroma.
