Winemaker Notes

Vibrant and generous; the 2017 Maître D’ is abundant with juicy red fruit that rolls playfully across the palate. Blackberries, milk chocolate and soft herbaceous notes make this wine deliciously aromatic. Subtle tannins and fragrant oak reside quietly in the background as flavors of raspberry, plum and mocha give this wine incredible depth and finesse.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Plump and spicy, with sarsaparilla, cream soda and nutmeg accents to the core of plush, ripe raspberry preserve and cherry compote notes. Great harmony and a polished, smooth body add to the charm. Drink now through 2029. 5,342 cases made, 2,056 cases imported.

Mollydooker Winery Video

Mollydooker is a family owned and operated winery based in a charming part of the world that is McLaren Vale, South Australia. The dedicated team make a portfolio of wines that beautifully represent the warm, coastal climate of the region, but with the uniqueness that results from their trademarked winemaking techniques.

Established in 2005, the name Mollydooker – Aussie slang for a left-handed person – was a fitting choice given the majority of the team, including owner Sarah were themselves left-handed. This point of difference runs through all the winery’s operations, from greeting visitors with a left hand, to always placing the wine glass to the left of a table setting.

In 2007, Mollydooker found a permanent home in McLaren Vale, with 116 acres of vineyards, and the following decade saw ambitious growth. Now, the team of 50 produces 80,000 cases of wine each year, across five different tiers to wine-lovers across Australia, the US and beyond. Its ‘hero’ grape is the quintessential McLaren Vale grape, Shiraz, whilst other varieties, including Cabernet and Merlot are also prominent, on their own and in blends. To offer a full range to suit all palates and occasions, Mollydooker also offers three styles of Verdelhos (including a sparkling), and a Merlot Rosé.

Mollydooker’s wines have been praised globally, including receiving five 99-point Wine Advocate scores by renowned wine critic, Robert Parker. Its Carnival of Love Shiraz has also been listed a record three times in Wine Spectator’s Top 10 Wines in the World. Under the ambitious leadership of owner Sarah Marquis, the company has been recognised for its business success, being chosen as the 2019 South Australian Business of the Year at the much revered Telstra Business Awards.

Using its success, Mollydooker’s passion is about making a difference to the lives of those less fortunate through ‘sipping it forward’. Each year, a portion of its proceeds is directed towards supporting its local and international communities. Locally, Mollydooker supports the Hutt Street Centre, which provides meals, social and support services to the homeless community of Adelaide. On an international scale, Mollydooker sponsors three schools through Transform Cambodia, which helps to educate street kids, and 20 women through Mercy Multiplied each year, providing a safe space for victims of abuse.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
