Wine Grapes Presale Reservation: Merlot

Wine grape preorders are accepted from now through August 3, 2018.

 

Merlot is a dark blue-colored wine grape variety, that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines. The name Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French name for the blackbird, probably a reference to the color of the grape. Its softness and "fleshiness", combined with its earlier ripening, makes Merlot a popular grape for blending with the sterner, later-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, which tends to be higher in tannin.

 

Along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, Merlot is one of the primary grapes used in Bordeaux wine, and it is the most widely planted grape in the Bordeaux wine regions. Merlot is also one of the most popular red wine varietals in many markets.

 

Broadway Brew Supply obtains Merlot grapes from Palisade, CO.

 

Broadway Brew Supply sources Merlot and other classic varieties sometime between mid-September and mid-October depending on growing conditions and numerous other factors.
