Mollydooker Goosebumps Sparkling Shiraz 2006
Vintage Sparkling Wine from Australia
The aim of this wine is to elicit a taste sensation similar to the qualities of Mollydooker's Shiraz, enhanced with creamy bubbles – a perfect wine for special occasions, or simply sharing with friends for the fun of it. There could be no better name for it than "Goosebumps" – you get them both from the bubbles and from the amazing intensity of flavor!
The Shiraz has been selected from Scott & Cheryl Longbottoms' vineyard in Padthaway and Darren & Belinda Joppichs' vineyard in Langhorne Creek, both of which are producing grapes which exude incredible flavor and complexity.
Wine Spectator - "Soft and spicy, with licorice- and pepper-scented cherry flavors. A real red wine aromatic profile, with a peppery edge and creamy foam to lift it up. Drink now. 2,169 cases made."
Mollydooker (Aussie for left-hander) Wines was established in 2005 by Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Five of their wines have been chosen in the Wine Spectator's "Top 100," and their Carnival of Love Shiraz has made the "Top 100" twice. The winery is on the prime Seaview Ridge in McLaren Vale, South Australia, and the vines are grown according to the Marquis Vineyard Watering Programme to give the grapes the rich flavors that distinguish Mollydooker's wines. Mollydooker makes Shiraz, Cabernet, Merlot and Verdelho. The Velvet Glove Shiraz, with 95%+ Marquis Fruit Weight is superbly complete and complex, with stunny beauty and power.

About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
