Winemaker's Notes:

This gorgeous Verdelho, our only white wine, has a lovely, creamy texture, great acidity and long, persistent flavors of honeysuckle, pineapple and citrus. It's all the things we love about white wine. We hope you'll love it too.

The Violinist is named for the days when Sarah was made to play the violin right-handed in school, so that she didn't poke her right-handed neighbours in the eye with her bow.

Pairs with all seafood, chicken, veal, cheese and dried fruits.

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.
