The Mollydooker winery is not like any other. The approach and the wines are not replicated anywhere else in the world of wine. They make wine that make you go WOW!
The attention to detail and commitment to excellence at Mollydooker is reflected in everything the estate does. The accolades Sarah and Sparky Marquis have achieved over the last two decades read like an entry in the Guinness Book of Records: Australian Boutique Winemakers of the Year, Australian White Winemakers of the Year, three times McClaren Vale Bushing King and Queen, Robert Parker’s Wine Personalities of the Year, World Cooperage Celebrated Winemakers and more trophies, ‘Best Wine’ awards and +94 Parker and Spectator scores than even they could have dreamt of!
Mollydooker (Aussie for left hander, because they are both left handed) was established in March 2006 in the McLaren Vale, with a state-of-the-art winery and 114 acres of vineyards on the magic Seaview Ridge – home to most of the iconic McLaren Vale wines. Sarah is now the sole owner and winemaker, running Mollydooker with the help of her team who continue to make the handcrafted wines for which they are rightly famous.
‘Mollydooker’ is old Aussie slang for a left handed boxer and our Boxer always punches well above its Fruit Weight™. Did you notice he has two left-handed gloves?
This alluring and unashamedly bold Shiraz has hints of spiced plums, blackberry jam and cherry all at the fore and finishes with coffee cream, licorice and vanilla. Full bodied with vibrant berry fruit characteristics, yet elegant with restrained tannins, resulting in a soft mouthfeel. Consistently impressive and seriously good, this wine is not short of character. This is a massive wine requiring an equally rich and powerful dish to enjoy with it.
