This is a classic Aussie Cabernet with an intense varietal nose and delicious ripe fruit. This wine is named after Sparky who put himself through winemaking college as a left-handed Maitre D'.
Sourced from our cooler climate vineyards, it is rich, intensely flavoured, yet elegant in style. Sparky thinks this is the best vintage ever.
Pairs well with savory, full-flavored meats such as roasted lamb, beef short ribs or even spice-rubbed or barbequed chicken. Especially delicious with hard cheeses and dark chocolate. Can be consumed with or without friends.
Drink now through 2017.
Mollydooker does it again with this beautiful cab. A lush coat of dark fruit leads into a smooth, refined finish. I want more!
Many years ago I had a bottle of Hill of Grace and I was hooked on Aussie Shiraz. Sparky and Sarah carry on the tradition of Heinskie, Penfolds, and a host of other "new world" winemakers that kick butt and take names. Maitre d' is rightly tagged one of the best wine values by both RP and WS. Bring on the Velvet Glove, godfather of the Molly Dooker label
