Mollydooker Shiraz the Boxer 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"This Boxer is astounding, so rich and so smooth and so powerful. Succulent berry flavours with luscious chocolate layers as well as licorice and spice. The deep dark colour of the wine matches the deep flavours of the wine. 2013 Boxer is rounded and full on the pallet and the perfect balance of tannins and fragrant oak support the impressive fruit. The Shiraz brings so much character and complexity in 2013 that the Boxer will be applauded by all who drink it." - winery

Fruit forward (but not a bomb) and spicy and an overall pleasure at the price point.

Very enjoyable. Don't forget to do the "Mollydooker Shake." Nice video on their website demonstrating the technique. Powerful & Full with a long finish. Have a bottle of Blue Eyed Boy that I can't wait to open based on how much I enjoyed the Boxer!

My first taste of "The Boxer" and a pleasant experience it was. This wine is perfect for drinking on its own in convivial ambiance with its deep, rich, dense and noticeably sweet, candied Maraschino cherry dominance of the palate. Very Oz, with the power and majesty of a usurper of the throne, this wine has, in my opinion, less elegance or finesse than (say) a top rank Côte-Rotie - if that's what you're seeking. But this does not mean the wine is not very, very good; simply that it is what it is and is good at what it is. Delicious!

Just in! A wonder from down under, Mollydooker wines were launched with the 2004 vintage and were an instant cult classic. Renowned winemaking team Sparky and Sarah Marquis continue to produce broodingly rich, decadent offerings that are snapped up as quickly as they are put on the shelf. This 2013 hasn't been scored yet but the pedigree is undeniable. Sourced from Mollydooker's vineyards in McLaren Vale (65%) and Langhorne Creek (35%), South Australia. 64 different parcels of grapes were vinified separately, barrel fermented and aged in 100% American oak, 50% new. It shows bold fruit and spicy flavors with amazing depth, richness, length and persistence. Don't miss it, it's limited!

Wow, this wine is definitely punching above its weight, and no wonder - the Fruit Weight is 73%, so it is almost at Party wine level! The power of the fruit is so enjoyable. It has a massive array of flavours, and awesome intensity but the thing that really finishes the wine off is the creamy layers and smooth mouth feel. It's so voluptuous. ~ Peter & Andrew ~Sweet, multi layered fruit, chocolate, fresh plum - a complete flavour spectrum. Excited to hold it in my mouth. ~ Sparky ~Barrel fermented and matured: 100% American oak 69% new; 31% one year oldAlc/Vol: 16%Residual sugar: 3.6pH: 3.7 ** Only 10 in Stock **

Dark and spicy, with a peppery edge to the black olive-accented blackberry flavors, finishing with a touch of heat. Drink now through 2018.

The Boxer Shiraz gives a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of creme de cassis, blackberry preserves and mocha plus an undercurrent of vanilla and cedar. The palate is very generously fruited, offering a whopping mouthful of spiced blackberry flavors with a low to medium level of silky tannins, enlivening acid and a long finish.
