How Do You Pronounce 'Merlot'?
A Quick Overview Of Merlot
Merlot grapes ripen early with a high yield, which makes it one of the most popular red-wine varietals (varietal means wine made from 1 predominant grape, rather than a blend of grapes) in the world. Merlot wines are known for their fruity, velvety quality.
English-speakers tend to pronounce the 'mer' in 'Merlot' to rhyme with 'her'. This is not correct - it is pronounced like the English word 'mare'.
