WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES
The very first person to taste this wine said “It’s a knockout!” so we named it The Boxer. Did you notice he is a double Mollydooker?
This powerful wine is vibrant, complex and jam packed with a kaleidoscope of flavours. Chocolate, plum and liquorice just to name a few; all beautifully wrapped in bright berry fruit on the mid-palate. Subtle oak elements and flawless tannins, intertwine with the fruit ever so gracefully. This impressive Shiraz finishes with a persistent length and is an absolute joy to drink.
