2016 BLUE-EYED BOY SHIRAZ, Mollydooker. McLaren Vale, South Australia
Alcohol Percentage: 16.5%
Area: A blend of Mollydooker's 'Home Block' in McLaren Vale and two vineyards in Langhorne Creek.
Grape Variety: 100% Shiraz picked (obviously) very ripe and matured in American oak (about 2/3 new oak)
Producer: Sarah and Sparky Marquis only started Mollydooker - an Aussie term for left-hander - in 2007, buying a new winery in McLaren Vale with 116 acres of prime vineyards. Their motto is 'We make wines which make people go WOW, through attention to detail and commitment to excellence'. They have already attained cult status in the USA where their high octane style is hugely popular.
Old Bridge Rating: Yes, it's a little "over-the-top", but that's the style. Hedonistic, luscious, ultra-rich
