The name Merlot is thought to be a diminutive of merle, the French name for the blackbird. At Jordan Wine Estate, our Merlot vineyards are based on Black Tourmaline-rich granite which darkens the soil, leading to perfumed, inky wines.

Cape Town Insiders’ Review Of The Wine

I had never tried Jordan’s Black Magic Merlot prior to this so I had no preconceptions of the wine. To say that this is a world-class Merlot isn’t an overstatement. It’s perfectly balanced: juicy, woody and still smooth and gentle. We absolutely loved this bottle of wine and I have to admit that I regretted sharing the bottle after taking the first sip.
