Merlot clonal selections located in Skopje's vineyard region, R.Macedonia, were studied during the period from 2005 to 2007. The aim was making a comparative examination of some agrobiological and technological characteristics of four Merlot clonal selections (181, 184, 346 u 348), cultivated in same agrotechnical and ampelotechnical measures. Different values for the examined characteristics were gained as a result of the grape variety specifications and ecological conditions during the examination years. During the examination period, Merlot clonal selection 181 has the most stabile yields with varying coefficient of 17,58 and the Merlot clonal selection 348 has the most biggest varying coefficient of 32,8. In the chemical composition of must some significant variations in the compositions of all acids, and insignificant variations in the sugar-glucose are noticed. The total average tasting value of 17.6 points was smallest at the wine produced from clone 184 and biggest at wines produced from clones 181 and 348 with 17.9 points.
