Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz 2009
Syrah/Shiraz from Australia
Complexed by combining the regional flavors of grapes, this wine has incredible power and purity. The grapes were grown on the Longbottom vineyard in Padthaway, the Birchmore vineyard in Langhorne Creek and the Mollydooker vineyards here in McLaren Vale.
Barrel fermented and matured in 57% new and 43% one year old American oak.
Pairs with BBQs, steak, ribs, anything with a bit of spice.
The Wine Advocate - "Matured in American oak, 57% new, the 2009 The Boxer Shiraz has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense blackberry, licorice, tar, menthol and cocoa bean aromas. Very full-bodied and with medium-firm fine-grained tannins and generous, warm-berry flesh, it is nicely balanced by crisp acid, finishing long and a little hot. Drink this one now to 2016."

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.
