The Oddbins Take

Merlot is sometimes prone to sulking. John Williams of Frog's Leap vineyards knows the secret to bringing her back to the festivities. Keep Merlot content. If she dosesn't grow in the happy place- clay. You'll get her classic party pout- nasty green flavours in the resulting wine. This grape likes 'cold feet and a warm body' Or in plain terms- put it in the right soil in a prime spot in the sun. Williams also loves the subtlety and restraint of Bordeaux. This approach combined with his careful attention to Merlots cordial demeanour gives us this utterly superb wine. Elegant and velvety texture, in harmony with raspberry fruits and fine grain tannins. If you keep the grape gleeful and it will give you marvellous Merlot!
