Varietal: Merlot

With its versatility and depth of fantastic fruity flavor, Merlot is one of the key grape varietals which has truly conquered the world of wines. Grown all over Europe, the Americas and elsewhere, Merlot grapes are distinguishable by their beautiful blue color and loose hanging bunches. They are a favorite with wineries due to their light tannin content and low levels of malic acid, meaning that Merlot wines are extremely drinkable and carry a depth of flavors which is at once fleshy and full, without being overpowering or challenging for the drinker. Merlots are often used for blending, as their roundedness and mellow nature is a perfect way to balance out more astringent varietals, leading to fuller, more complex and silky quality wines. Indeed, many of the finest wineries in the world in esteemed locations across countries such as France and Italy are famed for their habit of using ripened Merlot grapes to their full potential.

Region: Fleurieu

On the Fleurieu Peninsula of southern Australia, there are now dozens of wineries making the most of the excellent unique features the region provides, and such wineries are consistently impressing the wine world with their excellent produce. Most notably, Fleurieu benefits from a Mediterranean style climate, offering great warmth and exposure to sunshine throughout the days, tempered by brisk oceanic breezes and a wide range of micro-climates, which allow vintners to produce a wide range of wine styles. As with many parts of southern Australia, the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varietals make up for most of the winery's produce, although recent years have seen much experimentation with a wide range of grapes, making Fleurieu one of the most diverse and exciting wine regions in Australia.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
