Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy 2013 Shiraz Australia Red Wine
Janet, Sparky's Mum, said "Gorgeous! Oh my golly, it's so smooth and rich and satiny. Just incredible". We think this sums Blue Eyed Boy up very well.
THE WINE ADVOCATE - 92 points
&lsquo;A 100% McLaren Vale blend aged one year in 90% new American oak, the deep purple-black colored 2012 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz shows beautiful black fruit, warm cassis and mulberry notes with a spot of preserved plums, anise and yeast extract. This very spicy, very big and full-bodied wine is rich, viscous and concentrated. It finishes long and just a little warm. Drink it now to 2020+.&rsquo; - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
The delicious berry fruit and spice flavours of the cooler climate grapes from&nbsp;the Joppich Vineyard in Langhorne Creek gives the Blue Eyed Boy its crowd&nbsp;appeal. We blend it with McLaren Vale Shiraz to add intensity, vibrancy and&nbsp;richness. This year the McLaren Vale fruit came from the Gateway and Long&nbsp;Gully Road Vineyards.
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES
Definitely a personal favourite, every year the Blue Eyed Boy is a stand out. This Shiraz is bursting with generous amounts of fresh plum and blueberry, accompanied by spice and licorice all sorts. Supple texture and a creamy finish features layers of biscuit cream and espresso coffee. A well weighted wine with a truly elegant finish.
