Merlot

D3V14

Quality Rating: L-M

Date Imported/Registered: 1965

Original Selection from: Inglenook vineyard, California [5]

Comments: tendency to produce higher yields (driven by a bigger bunch and berry weight) while at the same time with lower pruning weights i.e. high fruit:shoot ratio. Anecdotal evidence would suggest that D3V14 needs to be picked comparatively riper than other clones to ensure that there is adequate seed and skin (tannin) ripe-ness, this often results in simple,sweet berry flavours. If picked unripe it can produce unattractive stalky (green) characters. Widely planted in Australia, but there are other better clones available
