Sea Change Merlot 2019
Pays D’Oc IGP, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Here at Sea Change Wine we love the Languedoc. One of the most fascinating regions in France, it offers spectacular coastlines, rugged castles and wonderful cuisine – as well as being the destination of a now infamous team trip! We believe the Languedoc is one of the most exciting and diverse wine regions in Europe and possibly France’s answer to the ‘New World’. The consistent climate helps indigenous grape varieties like Carignan flourish alongside more mainstream favourites such as our cracking Sea Change Merlot. A grape that can really do no wrong, it’s chock-full of dark fruit flavour whilst remaining soft and approachable. There is a reason that Merlot is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties!
Sea Change Merlot is crammed with flavours of delicious summer fruits and hints of green pepper on the nose. We think the subtle spice and soft tannins on the palate compliment the ripe berry flavours resulting in a delicious full bodied red wine that is surprisingly easy to drink!
We think French red wines offer some of the best food matching opportunities around. As for Sea Change Merlot, try it with a mushroom risotto or a roast rib of beef with all the trimmings (on a Sunday) – it’s hard to beat.
