Sea Change Merlot is juicy and wonderfully balanced.
Pays D’Oc IGP, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Sea Change Wine love the Languedoc. One of the most fascinating regions in France, it offers spectacular coastlines, rugged castles and wonderful cuisine. They believe the Languedoc is one of the most exciting and diverse wine regions in Europe and possibly France’s answer to the ‘New World’.
The consistent climate helps indigenous grape varieties like Carignan flourish alongside more mainstream favourites such as our cracking Sea Change Merlot. A grape that can really do no wrong, it’s chock-full of dark fruit flavour whilst remaining soft and approachable. There is a reason that Merlot is one of the world's most popular grape varieties!
Sea Change Merlot is crammed with flavours of delicious summer fruits and hints of green pepper on the nose. They think the subtle spice and soft tannins on the palate compliment the ripe berry flavours resulting in a delicious full bodied red wine that is surprisingly easy to drink!
French red wines offer some of the best food matching opportunities around. As for Sea Change Merlot, try it with roast rib of beef with all the trimmings (on a Sunday) – it’s hard to beat.

By purchasing this wine you are helping to fund ocean conservation education programmes both in the UK and around the world. Sea Change think it’s vitally important that the current generation is brought up with a better understanding of our impact on the planet than those before them.
Find yourself a new favourite wine from Sea Change, a social enterprise making waves of change with their eco-friendly wines.
These winemakers are committed to creating exceptional drinks and caring for our oceans in equal measure. Look closely at the beautiful hand drawn illustrations on each bottle and you’ll notice the marine animals depicted have bits of plastic inside, reflecting the effects of plastic pollution.
Keen to be part of the solution, Sea Change put real thought into their own packaging. There are none of those plastic wraps around their bottle tops and the labels are a mix of paper from certified sustainable forests and grape waste too. Even the corks are made from a renewable plant-based material.
Sea Change also gives back to conservation charities who help protect marine animals too, making a donation for every bottle sold. All this adds up to a lot of small ripples of change and one big positive impact per bottle.
Better still, there’s a great variety in their award-winning range. So you can toast to making a difference whether you’re partial to a prosecco, reds like negroamaro, whites like sauvignon blanc or a rosé.
