Mollydooker Shiraz Mclaren Vale Velvet Glove 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

DUE AUGUST 2010 ---- [On the 2007 vintage: 98 pts Robert Parker; 97 pts Wine Spectator] Stunningly complete and complex with amazing beauty and power. It has the most beautiful and captivating nose that explodes out of the glass with notes of chocolate espresso blackcurrant and spice. The awesome velvety sensation which coats your tongue like a glove is what makes this wine completely awesome!

The 2009 Velvet Glove is 100% Shiraz matured in American oak, 97% new. Very deep garnet purple colored, it gives intense warm blackberry, choco-mint, smoked bacon and marmite-toast aromas with nuances of coffee, roasted nuts and vanilla. Floral notes of violets and potpourri emerge after a few minutes. Very rich, very crisp, concentrated and full, there’s a good backbone of firm, very fine tannins and crisp acid leading into the very long and layered finish. This is a very well balanced, structured wine that should begin to open-out with 2–3 years in bottle, drinking 2014 to 2024+.

Winemaker's notes: Our pinnacle Shiraz, the Velvet Glove is crafted with stunning beauty and power. It wraps your entire palate in a velvet glove of amazing fruit flavors that seem to last forever. To honor the beauty and individuality of our Velvet Glove Shiraz, we seal it in a unique bottle, apply a real velvet label printed in silver foil, and then place the bottle in a gorgeous velvet bag embroidered with silver thread. It's our labor of love to provide you with a joyful experience from beginning to end. The grapes were grown on the Gateway vineyard in McLaren Vale Pairs with meat, anything chocolate, cheese, savour it on its own with good friends.

The 2006 Shiraz ldquo;The Velvet Gloverdquo; has an awesome nose bordering on ethereal. Aromas of smoke, violets, grilled meat, game, saddle leather, blueberry and chocolate leap from the glass. This full-bodied wine is packed and dense, layered with ripe black fruits, has superb delineation, great focus, and a super-long finish. It is still tightly wound and will benefit from a decade in the cellar. This hedonistic behemoth will drink well through 2040.
