After Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot is second-most planted grape in the entire world a dark blue-coloured grape variety (that is used as both a blending grape and for varietal wines). No doubt as a reference to the colour of the grape, Merlot wine gets its name from the French name for a blackbird: merle.

When does Merlot go bad?

After opening, it’s advised that Merlot wine can be kept for 3 to 5 days – as long as they are stored in a cool, dark place and with the cork in place. If you want to know how you would be able to tell whether your Merlot is off upon opening, consider whether:

  1. The smell is off.
  2. The Merlot wine tastes sweet.
  3. The wine is a brownish colour.
  4. You detect astringent or chemically flavours.
  5. It tastes fizzy, but it's not a sparkling wine.
