  • Why you should try: Carnival of Love showcases one of the best Mollydooker has to offer with 100% Shiraz, you will be WOW!
  • Estate Background: Mollydooker has become THE "cult wine" of Australia but at wine-lovers friendly price. The winery was founded in 2005 by Sarah and Sparky Marquis, an acclaimed husband-and-wife winemaking team. They introduced their own scientific "Marquis Vineyard Watering Programme" and measured the "Marquis Fruit Weight" to monitor and progress of the vines. Mollydooker's superb quality of their first vintage of 2005 brought them immediate world's attention. Both Sarah and Sparky are left-handed, hence the name of the winery, which literally means "left-handed" in Australian local slang.
  • Blend: 100% Shiraz

"Amazingly, the 2005 Carnival of Love ratchets up the level of quality. A selection of the finest Shiraz barrels, it boasts an extraordinary black/purple color, gorgeous notes of blackberry liqueur, camphor, and smoke, and an enormous voluptuousness that would make even Pamela Anderson jealous. Great purity, symmetry, and harmony as well as remarkable balance for such a rich, intense wine, as it sat in the glass espresso, vanillin, white chocolate, and additional black fruits also emerged. It should drink well for a decade, although the winemakers suggest it be consumed over the next four years. If you are wondering what to serve with this beauty, Sarah and Sparky Marquis recommend such fish as marlin, hammerhead, and great white shark, white meats such as snake and crocodile, red meats such as emu and kangaroo, and aged wallaby mild cheese. Yum!" (Oct 2006) 

Wine Advocate: 98

"Deep garnet-brick colored, the 2005 Carnival of Love displays a more earthy, meaty, gamey character with plenty of coffee and damp loam aromas fused with smoked bacon, some iron ore, Chinese plums, a little floral note and even a bit of truffles character coming through. It is very rich and full-bodied, with the acid line standing out a little from the very concentrated and quite evolved fruit core. Still, it has amazing layers and a lot to give on the very long, licorice-laced finish, even if just a bit warm." (Feb 2013)
