For December in a departure from most months, we bring you two luscious red wines.

First, is THE 2016 MOLLYDOOKER THE SCOOTER MERLOT.

Located in scenic McLaren Vale, bordered by the Adelaide Hills, the vineyards of Mollydooker are situated on Seaview Ridge, a site rich in ancient soils and blessed with a Mediterranean climate. Here, Mollydooker has three separate vineyards planted to Shiraz, Cabernet, and Merlot, all grown sustainably.

The Scooter is the only Merlot made, sourced from a single vineyard, and named after Sparky Marquis, co-founder and former winemaker, who raced a big tire scooter in his younger days. Considered the softest and most delicate of the many wines made at the winery, it is aromatic with both red and dark fruits accompanied by hints of chocolate and spice. Tannins are beautifully integrated. The structure is seamless and balanced. The wine is just a pleasure to drink. Enjoy it with a variety of dishes from cheeses to roasted vegetables and meats.
