About the Wine
This super red wine from Granfort originates from the Pays d'Oc area of Languedoc-Roussillon. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by LGI (Viticulteurs de L'Union). Granfort Merlot is an inspired wine, made from Ugni Blanc grapes. This screwcap wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Good with light Mediterranean dishes with cream, cheese or tomato sauces.
Merlot produces medium bodied, fleshy, juicy wines with round tannins. Often seen as a single varietal, or in a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon to take the hard edges off. Its grown all over the world and commercially one of the most important red grapes in the on-trade.
Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
