Mollydooker the Boxer Shiraz Australia South Australia Sarah and Sparky Marquis 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 91 Bright and jazzy, offering an effusive mouthful of cherry, pomegranate and spice flavors that are as aromatic as they are long and vivid. This has density without great weight, and the finish keeps on going. Drink now through 2015. Wine Tasting Notes This Shiraz is a knock out! The power, structure, complexity and length are amazing with opulent black fruit and spice, and a long silky finish.

Soft and smooth. This is not your overextracted fruitbomb australian Shiraz. This is a subdued well-balanced artisan wine that was made with love and care. Some coffee and black fruit notes. ready to drink now or until 2011.

Didn't really dig it this time. Big smoky nose. It's so big and dense, it lacks some finesse. Too intense. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 8/21/10

Mouth coating and long lasting cherry, pomegranate and spice flavors. Allergies got to me by this point and the nose stopped picking up the aromas. Dense but not heavy. Long lasting! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/3/10

Wow, a novelty sort of wine, I guess. Over the top aromas of caramel and vanilla; a real mouthful of forward flavors continuing on the candy-bar theme; mild spicy finish.

With aromas of blueberry, raspberry, violets, cedar and tobacco, it has a kaleidoscope of flavours that explode in your mouth with layers of blackberry, licorice, and spicy sweet fruit. Super-rich and opulent with a lingering finish of dark fruit and vanilla-oak.

Dark and dense. A big wine, yet lively with nutmeg and cinnamon-scented blackberry, cherry and licorice flavors, balanced against firm but well integrated tannins. Needs some time to soften. Best from 2007 through 2014.

Mollydooker 08 The Boxer Shiraz - 91 Points


External Review
05/18/2011

The 2005 The Boxer Shiraz (primarily from McLaren Vale, followed by Langhorne Creek and Padthaway) exhibits a black/blue/purple color, an incredible density of fruit along with that tell-tale purity, blackberries, white flowers, melted chocolate, sweet licorice, and subtle wood. Full-bodied, beautifully textured and layered with an awesome finish, it should drink well for 4-6+ years.
