Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz 2016
The Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz 2016 is an alluring and unashamedly bold Shiraz, with 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. This 2016 Boxer is sure to be a knockout!

Our first pick was our McLaren Vale Verdelho in the third week of February. The arrival of all our red grapes were fortunately well spaced out, which allowed the winemakers ample space to handle the fruit in the winery. During March and April the weather remained mild which was perfect for grape maturation, allowing the flavour and Fruit Weight(™) to consistently increase week by week. The ferments were well behaved and finished off beautifully in barrel, allowing early oak integration and added complexity in the wines.
Marquis Fruit Weight(™) is the percentage of your palate (from the tip of your tongue going all the way back) that's covered by the velvety sensation of fruit, before you experience any of the structural components of the wine and is our guarantee of quality.
