By Valentine’s Day I am determined to have you falling for Merlot. Merlot doesn’t seem to typically get the love that it deserves. But I think by February 14th I can warm up your hearts to the Merlot red wine grape. Merlot is really what many people are looking for in a red wine – medium/full bodied, smooth fruity flavours and pairs easily with a lot of foods. What is there not to love?! In the days leading up to Valentine’s on the Girl Drink’s Wine blog and Instagram I will be featuring different Ontario Merlots, Merlot food pairings and my Merlot Galantine’s event. I can’t wait to have you swooning over this delicious red wine!
I’m starting off your Merlot love affair with the G. Marquis Red Line Merlot. You can’t help but have a crush on this wine! The G. Marquis Red Line Merlot is easy going, approachable and enjoyable. It is a medium-bodied red wine with the most beautiful deep ruby colour. You’ll taste smooth flavours of red and black berries with slight hints of clove and nutmeg. Made from 100% Niagara VQA grapes the G. Marquis Red Line Merlot is widely available at LCBO stores for only $10.95. No risk in putting your heart on the ‘Red Line’ for the G. Marquis Merlot!
