Australian Merlot encompasses a wide range of styles: fragrant, round wines, soft with a fleshy texture and notes of mint, plum and fruitcake, as well as the more concentrated, complex and velvety Merlots. These wines are characterized by the more ripe fruit notes of plum, blackberry, blueberry and black currant. Merlot is not often seen as a monocépage but often in a blend with a Cabernet grape.
