Winemaker's Notes:

"...full-bodied, powerful, smoky nose, extravagant layers of fruit, spice, glycerin, and extract, full body, superb intensity, tremendous richness, and a seamless personality. It is a textbook example of a southern Australian red at its richest, fullest, and most pure. For consumers with open minds and progressive palates, this amazing red should age beautifully for 10-15 years."
-Wine Advocate

The wine is a blend of 66% Shiraz and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon.

This is a beautiful example of two varieties blended to become one. The nose is rich and powerful, with lifted blackberry, plum and spice aromas. As you sip your palate is filled with immense flavor that physically explodes in your mouth. With an elegant, silky smooth texture, this wine lingers in your mouth long after the sip has gone.

This wine is great with fish, white meats, red meats, salads and cheeses. Optimum drinking: now - 4 years.

About Mollydooker:

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.
