This month I’m featuring a wine by Mollydooker called The Boxer; it’s a 2014 Shiraz and it is amazing! My aunt had me try it a couple of months ago and I was blown away by the taste. The wine was creamy but also had some flavors of coffee and was smoky.
The winemaker’s notes are: “This year’s Boxer certainly lives up to it’s name with its double punch
of fruit! Initially, your taste buds will experience cherry, red
berries and plum flavours that develop beautifully into that of spice,
licorice, chocolate and cream. The soft tannins and underlining
structure contribute amazing depth and lusciousness. The Boxer is
undoubtedly a WOW wine that will surely lead you to fill your glass
first, as it won’t last long once the bottle is open”
One of the cool things about Mollydooker wines is that they are sulfate free. They use nitrogen to protect the wine, and the nitrogen sinks to the bottom of the bottles, in order to redistribute them, the bottle needs to be shaken. The bottles have a screw top so they can easily be shaken. You have to pour a little wine out first, then shake. All Mollydooker wines need to be shaken except thier sparkling wine and any wine that’s over two years old.
If you see this wine, you need to pick it up – it sure is an experience, and it is delicious!
