Why You'll Love it?
Mollydooker is renowned for their powerful, high intensity, full bodied reds with that “WOW” factor. Often mistaken for using long extraction methods to achieve this effect, their wines are actually only fermented for 5 - 6 days. The flavour profile and intensity of the wines are achieved through careful vine management and fruit selection combined with skilful winemakers who meticulously monitor and taste the grapes and wines throughout the entire process to ensure you receive that “WOW” factor in your glass. Minimal sulphites are used in their production. Nitrogen is used instead, which means you'll need to do the Mollydooker shake to release maximum flavour.
The Boxer Shiraz is barrel fermented and matured in 100% American oak using 43% new, 42% one year old and 15% two year old barrels. No super premiums (Carnival of Love, Enchanted Path or Velvet Glove) were produced in 2015 which meant all grapes that would have gone into those producing those wines are now in their Lefty and Family range - making this bottle great value!
This powerful wine certainly lives up to its name. Aromas and flavours of blackfruits, blackberries, violet, cassis, dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla and sweet spices punches you in the face (in a good way!). Full bodied, velvety smooth tannins and a long lingering finish. Don’t forget to do the Mollydooker shake to taste this wine at its best! Watch this video on how to do the Mollydooker shake.
