Wine Review: This pitch black colored Shiraz is an absolute fruit bomb. It was enjoyed by all that tried it. It opens with ripe blackberry bouquet with hints of bacon. The flavor profile is a rich blackberry jam with notes of minerality and vanilla oak. I also detected hints black raspberry and licorice as well. The finish is dry and its flavors last for quite some time. This wine is a perfect fireplace wine. Sip it with sharp cheddar cheese and a friend. You will certainly enjoy the company and this wine. Cheers - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This is the wine I tell all my friends about. To see the look on their faces after their first sip is priceless. The 2011 Carnival of Love so clearly shows the essence of Mollydooker. It has elegance; a complete, intense, seamless flavour spectrum; a sumptuous mouth feel and perfect balance. At 92% Fruit Weight it is a wine to go WOW about, an absolute beauty.
