Winemaker's Notes:

Our pinnacle Shiraz, the Velvet Glove is crafted with stunning beauty and power. It wraps your entire palate in a velvet glove of amazing fruit flavors that seem to last forever.

To honor the beauty and individuality of our Velvet Glove Shiraz, we seal it in a unique bottle, apply a real velvet label printed in silver foil, and then place the bottle in a gorgeous velvet bag embroidered with silver thread. It's our labor of love to provide you with a joyful experience from beginning to end.

The grapes were grown on the Gateway vineyard in McLaren Vale

Pairs with meat, anything chocolate, cheese, savour it on its own with good friends.

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.
