Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz
The grapes were grown on the Mollydooker Home, Coppermine Road, Long Gully Road, Fragos, Ryans Road, Seaview, Reedy Creek, Hawthorn Ridge, Booths & Martins Road vineyards in McLaren Vale and Birchmore & Joppich in Langhorne Creek. Barrel fermented and matured in 100% American oak using 42% new, 42% one year old and 16% two year old barrels.
Complex and expressive, the 2017 Boxer exudes vivacity whilst maintaining great length. Bright maraschino cherry, fresh plum, rich dark chocolate and liquorice max out the flavour spectrum. The tannins are fine, the fruit is soft and the flavours tickle the taste buds. Consistently impressive and seriously good, this wine is not short of character.
