Winemaker's Notes:

This is Shiraz at its best. This wine has a sumptuous aroma, revealing deep chocolate, lifted violets and blackcurrant fruit. With an amazing fruit expression reminiscent of strawberries dipped in chocolate, the palate is rich and robust, with licorice and spice fruit intermingled with lovely hints of oak. Its massive structure will explode in your mouth and finishes velvety smooth with lively, exuberant fruit.

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.
