Food Pairings for Mollydooker 'Two Left Feet' Shiraz Blend
So, it seems more than a few people do the Molly Dooker shake. Well, for what it's worth, I agree with you all: this is a very warm, inviting McLaren Vale wine with sherry-like medicinal notes, menthol, eucalyptus, cooked chokecherry and bilberry pie on both nose and palate. A bit warm for my personal preference, but delicious, quite nicely blanced depsite the 16% alcohol by volume and, well, manly. Strangely, many of my women friends love this wine despite its power. Just goes to show what we men know. Very nice if you can get it for under 25 dollars US. 89 points.
Dark, tight, meaty and roasty nose. Aromas of blackberry and blueberry reduction. Flavors of blackberries, blueberry with nuances of menthol, spice, anise and bacon fat. It's very concentrated, big, rich and ripe. Spicy palate with cumin and licorice yet retains velvety tannins and good, lively acidity. It's powerful and dark, rich and coating. Roasty with good pepper flavors. A tad warm on the palate. 86 pts. 11/10/12
Yet another great production from Mollydooker. The complexity here in the Enchanted Path is a bit more than with their pure Shiraz offerings. Dark deep rich flavor with a nice round pallet. With one sip you can tell you are in for a treat! $79.95 VW
This wine is amazingly smooth, bold, however its very sweet for a red, for OUR taste. So its given 4 glasses for quality, but on the Kozar scale 3. Would not buy again as there are other more earthy european full-bodied wines we prefer. That being said we have not met a Mollydooker we haven't enjoyed. All have been fantastic to drink. $69 VW.
Deep purple in the glass, receding to magenta at the rim. Mouthwateringly jammy nose. The palate is full and rich with notes of big blue and some red berry, some licorice, and finished with a nice pepper note. Big alcohol! Tasty, but just a bit too much. Needs food, or a few years of aging.
One of my favorites! Don't forget to do the 'Molly Dooker Shake!'

Concentrated, big, rich and ripe, it offers a very spicy palate with some licorice and cumin seed coming through, supported by a medium level of velvety tannins, lively acidity and finishing very long.

Dense, deep and complex, offering a cascade of cherry, blueberry and clotted cream flavors, with a whole range of spices on a plush texture. This has an arresting presence and finishes with pizzazz.
WOW! An incredibly powerful and complex Shiraz with sweet fruit and lovely structural tannin. The wine is made more Complex by combining the regional flavors of grapes, this wine has incredible power and purity. Did you notice that The Boxer is a double Mollydooker?
Fresh and vibrant, this delivers a lively mouthful of dark cherry, mocha and bay leaf flavors that linger on the firm finish. Best after 2013. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. -HS Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2010 Mollydooker The Boxer 750ml
Black crimson in colour, this wine leaps from the glass with powerful aromatics of blueberries, ripe sweet fruit, licorice and undertones of chocolate biscuit. The seductive texture is laced with fresh fruit flavours, coffee and warm spice.
"Two Left Feet has a deep garnet-purple color and a slightly closed nose of black currant cordial, mulberries, espresso and tree bark with a whiff of bacon. Full-bodied, ripe, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a good foundation of crisp acid and a medium level of silky tannins, finishing long." - Wine Advocate
