Velvet Glove Shiraz 2017, Mollydooker

£132.00 per bottle

About this wine

Mollydooker’s ultimate expression of Fruit Weight™, the Velvet Glove is an Australian Shiraz deep in flavour and rich in texture.  Sticky plum jam and spicy nutmeg aromas are alluringly prominent on the nose, whilst berries and mocha weave and envelop your entire palate. The finish is incredibly smooth and silky, with elegant fruit flavours that linger in your mouth. An outstanding example of a perfectly balanced Shiraz from McLaren Vale.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
