Mollydooker The Scooter Merlot 2019
WHO IS THE SCOOTER?
The Scooter was named after Sparky, who raced a big tyre scooter when he was younger.
Fragrant and silky smooth, the 2019 Scooter charms the senses with a nose full of cherries and forest fruits. Fresh plum and sweet berries delight on your first sip, before giving way to spices reminiscent of nutmeg and cinnamon. Finely poised and balanced, the 2019 Scooter’s delicate tannins allow complexity, making this Merlot an absolute treat.
