Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove Australia South Australia Fleurieu Mclaren Vale Red 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Easily the most complete, layered, and pure of the lineup, the 2010 Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove (100% Shiraz aged almost all in 100% new American oak) is a powerful, yet elegant Shiraz that boast stunning aromas of blackberry liqueur, mineral, coffee, roast beef, and hints of flower oil that flow to a full-bodied, seamless, and beautifully balanced palate. While no lightweight, this is remarkably deft and clean on the palate for a wine of this size and shows fantastic purity of fruit, layers of texture, and a brilliantly focused, long finish. Thrilling stuff that needs an hour of air to shine, this hedonistic delight should not be missed by any Shiraz lover! Enjoy bottles over the coming decade or more...97" Rhone Report 06/12 "Broad, ripe and generous, singing with red berry, cherry and spice flavors that join in a lusty chorus as the finish sails on and on. Has depth and power. The structure just melts into the whole package seamlessly, and the flavors seem to scale higher and higher with each sip...96" WS 2011
