Mollydooker Two Left Feet 2009
Other Red Blends from South Australia, Australia
A powerful blend of all our favorite red varieties (Shiraz, Cab, Merlot), it has incredible depth and complexity. Named for what happens when Sparky dances with Sarah!
The grapes were grown on the Longbottom vineyard in Padthaway, the Birchmore vineyard in Langhorne Creek, the Gemtree and Mollydooker vineyards here in McLaren Vale.
Pairs with pizza, pasta, anything with a bit of spice, lasagna, pork, veal, osso bucco, lamb shanks, cheese.
The Wine Advocate - "Blended of 68% Shiraz, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, the 2009 Two Left Feet was aged in 88% American oak and 12% French, 52% new. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it offers pronounced notes of black currant cordial, blueberry pie filling, anise, chocolate and hints of eucalyptus, vanilla and baking spices. Very full-bodied and opulently fruited, the palate is well structured with crisp acid and medium-firm, fine-grained tannins. It’s a bit taut and disjointed at the moment, possibly requiring another 12 months to marry and then drinking to 2016+."
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.

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.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
