Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz Red Wine 2014
&nbsp;Wine Advocate REVIEW
&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,&nbsp;www.erobertparker.com
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES
Upon smelling this wine, your senses are immediately drawn in by a bouquet of deep blueberry, rich plum and coffee. These prominent fruit flavours are closely followed by chocolate and lustrous licorice spice with creamy vanilla constantly weaving its way through. This beautifully balanced wine is a classic representation of our Blue Eyed Boy: truly a vibrant, ripe, and indulgent experience.&nbsp;
MARQUIS&nbsp; FRUIT&nbsp; WEIGHT
Marquis Fruit Weight&trade; is the percentage of your palate (from the tip of your tongue going all the way back) that's covered by the velvety sensation of fruit, before you experience any of the structural components of the wine.
The grapes were grown on the Joppich vineyard in Langhorne Creek and the Gateway and Kirwin vineyards in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 83% new and 17% one year old. 100% American oak.
Residual sugar: 2.8g/L
