2005 Mollydooker Carnival Of Love Shiraz - Rare Signed Magnum - 99 Points!

Mollydooker Wines is a family estate in the McLaren Vale district of South Australia particularly known for its full-bodied, silky red wines made from classic Australian grape varieties like Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. These frequently gain high ratings from Wine Spectator and Robert Parker and are among the most sought-after wines produced in Australia.

The label made its debut in 2006, though owner Sarah Marquis already had extensive experience working in the wine trade. Success came rapidly for Mollydooker; The Wine Advocate rated the first edition of The Boxer Shiraz the best value red wine in the world, with the estate's Two Left Feet Shiraz – Cabernet coming second. Mollydooker's Maitre D' Cabernet Sauvignon came in fourth, and just for good measure The Violinist white wine topped the best value white wine list. Unsurprisingly the wines sold out in days and this early success fueled the purchase of vineyards and a winery in 2008.

Mollydooker's three vineyards are planted to Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and total 116 acres (47 hectares). They are situated on the Seaview Ridge and enjoy a Mediterranean climate. The winery crushes around 1300 tons per year and aims for an annual output of 80,000 cases. The only white wines – one still and one sparkling – are made from Verdelho sourced from Gemtree.

Rating 99 RP - 2005 Mollydooker Carnival Of Love Shiraz - Rare Signed Magnum - 99 Points! Amazingly, the 2005 Carnival of Love ratchets up the level of quality. A selection of the finest Shiraz barrels, it boasts an extraordinary black/purple color, gorgeous notes of blackberry liqueur, camphor, and smoke, and an enormous voluptuousness that would make even Pamela Anderson jealous. Great purity, symmetry, and harmony as well as remarkable balance for such a rich, intense wine, as it sat in the glass espresso, vanillin, white chocolate, and additional black fruits also emerged. It should drink well for a decade, although the winemakers suggest it be consumed over the next four years. If you are wondering what to serve with this beauty, Sarah and Sparky Marquis recommend such fish as marlin, hammerhead, and great white shark, white meats such as snake and crocodile, red meats such as emu and kangaroo, and aged wallaby mild cheese. Yum! RP
