The Grape Varietals
A dark blue-hued grape used for both blending and Merlot varietal wines. Merlot grapes originally hail from France, however many notable regions now cultivate and vinify this grape, including Australia and California. Due to its excellent adaptability to different climates and winemaking techniques, Merlot grapes deliver an approachable style to a variety of food-friendly wines. Typically, Merlot grapes create dry and medium-to-full-bodied wines with moderate acidity, medium to high alcohol, and soft tannins.
One of the most popular black grape varietals, Cabernet Franc is typically blended with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon for a classic Bordeaux style wine. Cab Franc is found in many European regions such as the Libournais and Bordeaux regions of France, where Cabernet Franc originated, and continues to be some of the most notable regions for producing this grape to this day. This grape results in a medium-bodied red wine with moderate tannins, a medium-to-high acidity, and a beautiful balance between red fruits, herbs, and earthiness.
Known as the most popular red grape in the world, Cabernet Sauvignon is a hybrid grape created from the crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. Although originally from France, Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in nearly every winemaking region in the world, including the U.S., Australia, France and South America. Used in both blending and varietal wines, Cabernet Sauvignon often results in a full-bodied, high acidity, and high alcohol wine with bold tannins that mellow over time while maintaining a strong structure for extended barrel aging.
Another dark-skinned grape, Syrah, is a result of the crossing between two relatively unknown grapes from the southeastern region of France; Mondeuse Blanche and Dureza. Originating from the Rhône region in France, Syrah is most notable in South Africa, South Australia, and Rhône, France. Wines made from Syrah are intensely dark-colored, full-bodied, and feature strong aromatic notes with flavors of smoke and pepper, resulting in a very bold wine.
Known as Pinot Grigio in Italy, Pinot Gris in France, or Grauburgunder in Germany, this gray-skinned grape is a popular white wine varietal. While originating in Burgundy, France, as Pinot Gris, this grape is notable in many regions of the world including Italy, Germany, France, and the U.S. Typically and traditionally, a Pinot Grigio is a dry, light-bodied wine with relatively high acidity and notes of fresh citrus, stone fruits, and faint honeysuckle.
