Merlot Red Wine

Merlot red wine is notorious for its versatility, palatable dryness and soft tannins. They vary in taste, body and alcoholic strength dependant on region, lighter variants arising from climates similar to its native France, gaining strength in hotter climes. Expect moderate acidity that pairs well with white or dark meats. Lighter merlots pair better with roasted meats or mushrooms. Fuller bodied merlot red wines pair better with bolder foods such as game. Uncork merlot red wine around 17 degrees celcius (62.5 farenheit), achievable via 15 minutes in a refridgerator. If any remains, cork and refridgerate for 2-4 days, at which point it will oxidise, and may be better used to marinate meats or vegetables.
