Richard Hamilton Lot 148 Merlot 2016

Special Price $17.00 Regular Price $22.00
A Merlot that’ll earn ‘Sideways’ glances for the right reasons. This edition has a particularly deep colour for Merlot, in the reddy black spectrum. Plenty of fruitcake and black n blue fruit notes here along with a waft of cinnamon and nutmeg. Supply slurpable and with a tannin finish that reminds you why red wine is the angry cousin. Fortunately he’s dressed for the dinner and not a family barbeque. Sorry, this product is not available individually.

I love this time of year, mild Autumn weather sets in and a vigneron’s thoughts turn to getting precious fruit off the vine and into winery. This conjures for many wine drinkers a romantic notion of wine maker or grower walking through the vineyard chewing on a grape or two, a thoughtful look at the sky then a knowing nod to the vineyard manager that ‘it’s time’. The reality is somewhat different as I experienced again this year in McLaren vale as assistant dog’s body at Five Lazy Acres (nee Killibinbin Sandtrap), owned and operated by Liz and Ritchie Smith. It was an early start and we were out in the vineyard at 4am as the harvester started its rounds, the real back breaking work hadn’t started for us yet but I could see the stress levels rising as Ritchie began calculating in his head how much fruit was coming off and what it was going to convert to in real volume and ultimately income.
