MOLLYDOOKER Shiraz 'The Velvet Glove' 2012

The 2012 'Velvet Glove' Shiraz from Mollydooker is ethereal and is clearly pushing perfection at this juncture. This Shiraz begins with an exceedingly dark core that stains the glass with its inky color. The sexy, hedonistic and aromatically intense wine begins with aromatics of toffee, blueberry compote, blackberry cordial and crème de cassis. There are intense, concentrated flavors of cassis, blackberry pie, mocha, blueberry compote and hints of sage that sit alongside incredible acidity at it core. The viscosity of this majestic wine is remarkable as the fruit weight on the mid-palate deliciously coats your palate. This wine possesses some very serious aging potential as it is opulent right now, but will slowly mellow over time, however I see no need to currently shy away from enjoying this gorgeous bottling early on. An outstanding effort form the entire Mollydooker winemaking team in crafting this memorable Shiraz. (Best 2016-2025) - October, 2016 (OB)
