Hugh Hamilton “The Ratbag” Merlot 2004

I am usually not a fan of Merlot as it is too soft for my liking, way to subtle. I like a wine that smacks you across the back of your tonsils and shakes you all about. Now while this is not as in your face as the typical Aussie big Red like the Barossa Shiraz or the Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, there is something that lifts it above the standard Merlot. I like this one – I’d be interested to hear the thoughts of people who know and like Merlot’s as to their opinion of this in my not so humble opinion tasty drop.

Check it out – smooth, velvety and fruity 😀
