Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a blend of 65% Shiraz, 19% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine is a masterful blend. Bursting with exuberant fruit and a complex aromatic nose, this wine shows lovely integrated hints of vanillan oak and multitude of flavors ranging from spice, chocolate and blackberry fruit. Both powerful and delightful, this wine exudes all three varietal characters in a strong and harmonious way.

This wine is great with fish, white meats, red meats, salads and cheeses. Optimum drinking: now - 4 years.

"The 2005 Two Left Feet is a 65% Shiraz, 19% Merlot, and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon blend assembled by Sarah Marquis. The fruit is sourced from McLaren Vale, Padthaway, and Langhorne Creek, and the wine is aged for 9-12 months in a combination of American and French oak (about 50% new and 50% one-year old). It boasts an inky/purple color, superb intensity, a big, sweet, full-bodied nose of creme de cassis, graphite, white chocolate, black olives, blackberry liqueur, and spice, and a spectacular, voluptuous, even unctuous texture. This is a big, powerful, classic southern Australian red made with no compromises. The good news is that there are 6,500 cases of this superb value. Drink it over the next 3-4 years, although I suspect it will last for a decade or longer. Two more expensive Mollydooker cuvees will be reviewed in my full Australian report in the October issue." -Wine Advocate
