“The Boxer” Shiraz 2018
This alluring and unashamedly bold Shiraz has hints of spiced plums, blackberry jam and cherry all at the fore and finishes with coffee cream, licorice and vanilla. Full bodied with vibrant berry fruit characteristics, yet elegant with restrained tannins, resulting in a soft mouthfeel.

Mollydooker is Australia's own down-to-earth version of the more sought-after of Sreaming Eagle or Sine Qua Non - cheaper in price, but also with its own cult status. Unapologetically bold, even for a Shiraz, the wine gives a feeling of drinking a chocolate-like wine - thick, silky, savory and utterly delicious. Unconvention in style, the estate releases a series of uniquely named and highly sought-after labels. Robert Parker is a big advocate of the estate, calling the Boxer Shiraz "the world's best quality value red wine". The Mollydooker estate is family run and located in the esteemed McLaren Vale, situated in Southern Australia.
