2011 VELVET GLOVE, Mollydooker. Mclaren Vale, South Australia

Bin:  605

Alcohol percentage:  15.5%

Grape variety:

100% Shiraz aged in new American oak

Producer:

Sarah and Sparky Marquis only started Mollydooker – an Aussie term for left-hander – in 2007, buying a new winery in McLaren Vale with 116 acres of prime vineyards. Their motto is ‘We make wines which make people go WOW, through attention to detail and commitment to excellence’. They have already attained cult status in the USA where their high octane style is hugely popular

Old Bridge rating:

We get 6 bottles a year so this is one of only three wines in the shop I (JH) have not tried.
It does comes in an amzing package. The label itself is a “glove” made out of black velvet. Since you can’t print on velvet, the label is silver foiled with the logo and wine details. The whole bottle is then wrapped in a black velvet bag with satin rope closures.
It will almost certainly be sold out by the time you read this. We only leave it on the website so you can put yourself on the waiting list for next year if you would like to

Press review:

‘Polished, expressive, supple and velvety, glowing brightly with blueberry, black and damson plum, with a panoply of sweet
spices, all the flavors melding together with impressive integrity and persisting in a very long, complex finish…’ – 96/100, Harvey Steiman, www.winespectator.com
