MOLLYDOOKER 'THE BOXER' SHIRAZ, AUSTRALIA 2019
Varietal: 100% Shiraz
Region: South Australia
What's so Special: ‘Mollydooker’ is old Aussie slang for a left handed boxer and The Boxer always punches well above his Fruit Weight. Did you notice he has two left-handed gloves?
Tastes Like: This alluring and unashamedly bold Shiraz has hints of spiced plums, blackberry jam and cherry all at the fore and finishes with coffee cream, licorice and vanilla. Full bodied with vibrant berry fruit characteristics, yet elegant with restrained tannins, resulting in a soft mouthfeel. Consistently impressive and seriously good, this wine is not short of character.
What the Pros Say: Wine Spectator - 92 Points: "Thick, with sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and powerful, ripe blackberry, huckleberry and blueberry flavors that show aromatic accents of allspice, Earl Grey tea, vanilla bean, milk chocolate and dried violet on the finish. Drink now through 2036."
