Mollydooker Carnival of Love 2016
Winemaker Notes :
The 2016 Carnival of Love is an opulent celebration of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Fresh aromas of raspberry and plum, with hints of earthiness, create the intense nose, while the palate provides a full spectrum of flavours from cherry to mocha and spice. Exhibiting poise and balance, the lovely hints of oak reside as an undercurrent of fine tannins and subtle vanilla. The soft mouthfeel creates the sense of melted chocolate, yet the lingering finish of berry compote brings the wine to where Shiraz excels.
Wine SpectatorStrikes the right balance between dense, dark flavors and a juicy, vibrant note. Apricot, cherry and raspberry flavors are pure, ripe and expressive, mingling well with Earl Grey tea, sarsaparilla and orange zest accents. The tannins are concentrated and a tad rustic on the finish, adding a charming chewy element. Drink now through 2027.
