Mollydooker “The Scooter” Merlot 2015, or, Er… Where did that go?

I wanted to write a really good, positive review about this wine. I really did. Because it is a good little wine. And being a “mollydooker” myself (aka – a leftie), I felt I owed it to the winemakers to put in a good show. To represent.

Alas, like the gentleman on the scooter represented on this label, I whizzed my way through a few glasses of this with nary a thought of the consequences.

Which, now that I think of it, says something in itself.

Having said that, I recommend that you exercise a little restraint before pouring, and take a good look at the back of the bottle. Their suggestions to serve the wine at 16 degrees, and do the “mollydooker shake” before pouring, are worth following. Thankfully, the mollydooker shake is not a Macarena-style dance move, but a way of ensuring that nitrogen does not impinge on the flavour of the wine. See their jaunty little website for more information.
