2009 Mollydooker Carnival Of Love Shiraz - Rare Double Magnum

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 93 RP - The 2009 Carnival of Love is 100% Shiraz coming from a single vineyard of 9 year old vines and matured in 97% new and 3% one year American oak. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it gives intense creme de cassis, vanilla, spice, mocha and licorice notes. Crisp and firmly structured with a high level of grainy tannins, this is a full-bodied, powerful Shiraz with a great deal of ripe dense fruit giving very good persistence. It finishes seriously spicy and just a little hot. Consider drinking this one 2012 to 2019+. RP
