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.
We inspired the name “Wine Anatolia“ from today’s Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Syria & Iraq. Historically wine production in Anatolia goes back to 3,000 BC. Our aim is to serve information about wines from all over the world specially anatolia.
