Mollydooker Shiraz Carnival of Love 2012
You will be blown away by the depth and complexity of this wine. It is a big wine yet remains elegant. There are layers of rich cherry and blackberry fruits, creamy vanilla notes, chocolate and even some pepper and spice. It has great intensity and a silkiness that lingers over the palate.
External Reviews for Mollydooker Shiraz Carnival of Love
Wine Spectator #2 Wine of the Year!! Mollydooker (Aussie for left-hander) Wines was established in 2005 by Sarah and Sparky Marquis and they've done nothing but receive rave reviews for their wines since then. The winery is on the prime Seaview Ridge in McLaren Vale, South Australia, and the vines are grown according to the Marquis Vineyard Watering Programm to give the grapes the rich flavors that distinguish Mollydooker's wines. The Carnival of Love Shiraz is one of their best and has made the Wine Spectator's "Top 100" twice. The Wine Spectator scored this 2012 it 95 points as did the Wine Advocate who said "Very deep purple-black in color, the 100% Shiraz, single vineyard 2012 Carnival of Love exudes fragrant notes of warm blackberries, creme de cassis and dried mulberries intermingled with a lovely dried herb undercurrent, lavender, dark chocolate and anise. With a nice structure of medium to firm rounded tannins and a lively acid backbone, this very big, full and rich wine has a very long finish. Drink it now to 2025+." Extremely Limited!!!
