Mollydooker the Carnival of Love Mclaren Vale 2007
Our whole family is involved in making our wines, and many of those who enjoy Mollydooker wines become our friends, so we named this wine the Carnival of Love, because the wines bring us all together. If you look closely you will notice that the Lefty characters are all included in the label and when you join the Carnival of Love and the Enchanted Path together, the two labels form one beautiful continuous love story.
deep inky ruby color with viscous legs; intense, opulent blackberry, blueberry and tar on the nose; full bodied, lush mouthfeel and a bit hot; tastes like stereotypical big aussie shiraz...then again i'm drinking it out of a red solo cup, so who knows
Nose is intoxicating, literally... with blueberry jam on toast and vanilla. Dark and obviously hot. Full bodied and showing sweet blackberry that turns spicy but drying after the initial flavor burst that finishes very hot with a lasting flavor of sour blackberry on the finish. This wine is out of balance. I know there are people out there that really enjoy these but obviously, I'm not one of them. This wine could be poured over ice cream of drank for a quick buzz.
Loved this, huge ripe fruits, balanced rich tannins. Stays in your face for what seems like forever! Just a power wine with fantastic fruit!
I haven't had anything better.
Tried the wine pre and post Mollydooker shake. The shaking definitely opens the wine up a lot. Yes, you can trust the seal on the screwcap. This is inky, fruity stuff. I can see this going over amazingly at a party or a bbq but this is not a wine to be drunk in a quiet setting. I will have to revisit in the proper setting.
Tasted from an enomatic system. Shiraz is hit or miss with me, but this is a deep, dark, complex nosed and delicious example of great Australian shiraz. Great notes of dark berries, oak, chocolate. I was pleasantly surprised.
Explosive fruit on this, as well as some tight tannins. Definitely decant if you will be drinking now. Lots of bramble fruit on the palate - it is a mouthfull!
External Reviews for Mollydooker the Carnival of Love Mclaren Vale
Big, rich and terrifically ripe. A lithe mouthful of pure wild blueberry and Asian spices, with swirls of plum and other berries as the finish rolls on, unimpeded by tannins. In the end, this has elegance to go along with its power. Drink now through 2017.
Inky purple. Boysenberry and blueberry syrup aromas, with notes of chocolate syrup, and a whiff of heat gaining strength with air. Thick, creamy and extremely sweet; tastes like an artificial dark berry pancake syrup, with no noticeable tannins or acidity. The finish refuses to let go of the palate, suggesting that persistence isnrsquo;t always a good thing. I thing Irsquo;ve finally found the wine to serve with the Luther Burger.
Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz 2007: lagerfähig 5 - 7 Jahre ab JahrgangJahrgang: 2007Inhalt: 0,75 LRegion: McLaren ValeWeingut: MollydookerRebsorte: 100% Shiraz Restzucker: Restsäure: Alkoholgehalt: Rotwein
The opaque purple-colored 2007 Blue-Eyed Boy Shiraz spent 12 months in 80% new American oak. It offers up an enticing nose of cedar, tobacco, mineral, blueberry, and black raspberry. Opulent on the palate, this glossy effort will evolve for another 1ndash;2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.
This has a hot black pepper streak running through the meaty cherry, dense plum and spice flavors, persisting on the round, supple finish. Drink now through 2014.
