2006 Mollydooker - Shiraz The Boxer Syrah - Australia - South Australia - McLaren Vale - Red

Australia - South Australia - McLaren Vale

Red Syrah
Producer Notes

Scientific methodology prevails at quirky Australian winery Mollydooker, a 1995 creation of husband and wife Sparky and Sarah Marquis. Famed for their consistently high-scoring "Velvet Glove" Shiraz, the Marquis team strives to produce the "velvet glove" palate sensation, a blanket of flavor that covers the palate before the structure is revealed, in all their blends. This process of creating... More »

Opened with a nose of cedar and chocolate. Long on the pallete with a strong bordeaux style to it. Fantastic bottle. I need more!

The 2006 Shiraz The Boxer is also opaque purple. The compelling nose exhibits aromas of scorched earth, smoke, grilled bacon, blueberry compote, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, thick and rich, this layered Shiraz is velvety-textured and opulent. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. It is a sensational value. It can be enjoyed now but will evolve for several years

Delicious: Sweet black fruit and cassis on the nose. Chocolate and blueberry fruit on the palate. Nice medium finish. This is 16% alcohol but the ripe fruit can handle it. The wine is balanced and may be at its peak now.

I love big black heavy stouts and porters and I don't shy away from 16+% big red wines but this was too much. Too much glycerine made this syrupy in the mouth and out of balance and tough to drink overall without the compensatory acid; had to chill to tame all the elements, then it was fine, drinkable and enjoyable but I kept fearing the beast would rear it's ugly head again as the wine warmed in my hand. Shouldn't have to manipulate to enjoy. I would choose the Marquis Philips #9 over this to enjoy this version of shiraz.

About what I was expecting. Big, fruity, a bit hot. Not quite as big as last years offering, but that's not neccessarily a bad thing. There are many excellent $17-$20 Australin wines and this is one of them.

Big and powerful as expected, but after a little team in the glass, really settled down and fruit came to life as the backbone softened. Still 'hot', but sweeter and fruitier than expected.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
