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

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!

Broad, spicy and dense at the core, with plum and blackberry fruit playing against toasty, spicy overtones and polished tannins as the finish persists. Drink now through 2019.

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.
