WHO IS THE SCOOTER?

The Scooter was named after Sparky, who raced a big tyre scooter when he was younger.

TASTING NOTES:

This vibrant and lifted Merlot exudes rich plum flavours with undertones of both red and dark fruit and a soft touch of oak. As the wine develops in the glass, layers
of chocolate, nutmeg and cinnamon spice come to the fore. The soft mouth-feel and tannin integration allow for all the beautiful flavours of this wine to shine through.

TECHNICAL NOTES:

The grapes were grown on the Long Gully Road vineyard in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 96% American and 4% French oak, using 28% new, 31% one year old and 41% two year old barrels. The required Marquis Fruit Weight™ for the Lefty Series is 65% – 75%. The Actual Fruit Weight for 2021 The Scooter is 66%.
