Red fruits, easy tannins and a soft finish are the characteristics of Merlot wine. But there’s more to Merlot than being smooth. It’s actually a bit of a chameleon, partly because of how Merlot is vinified and mostly because of where it’s grown. Take a look at the range of Merlot wine taste based on region (cool climate vs. warm climate).
If you like the idea of butter in your glass, you’ll love the classic style of oak-aged Chardonnay wine. On the other hand, if words like “Pinot Grigio” make you feel woozy with love, then your perfect Chardonnay is the unoaked kind. How can a single grape offer such a variety of flavors? Well, in addition to the difference in winemaking (oak vs. no oak), ripeness has a lot to do with flavor.
70% CAB / 30% Merlot - Fleshy, dark berry fruits and warm spice fill the palate, supported by a barely perceptible touch of oak. An evenly textured, silky mouth-feel finishes with fine velvety tannins and a tight acid backbone.
Viognier has the potential to produce full-bodied wines with a lush, soft character. In contrast to Chardonnay, the Viognier varietal has more natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality.
The wine is alive with aromas and flavors of citrus fruit, white flowers, green apples, lemon curd, white peaches, pears, spice and the sea. The wine is juicy and texturally satisfying, succulent, complex, long and beguiling.
