About Mollydooker 2018 Blue Eyed Boy, Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Here is an elite Shiraz from Molldooker whose lush, densely flavored Australian wines are all cult classics. This wine is a perennial favorite and this latest release from the 2018 vintage does not disappoint. The grapes were grown on the Coppermine Road, Gateway, Long Gully Road and Mollydooker Home vineyards in McLaren Vale and the Joppich Vineyard in Langhorne Creek. Barrel fermented and matured in 100% American oak, using 58% new and 42% one year old barrel


Wine Spectator scored this 92 points saying "Spicy, offering cumin, clove and smoked paprika notes that mingle well, with a hint of violet up front. Features toothsome blackberry and blueberry flavors at the core, resulting in a generous finish that shows impressive harmony. Drink now through 2034."


The Wine Advocate scored this 92 points saying "Hints of maple syrup join with chocolate and vanilla on the nose (that's the oak talking), backed up by masses of dark, plummy fruit in the 2018 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz. Full-bodied, concentrated and intense, it's dense and rich—a dark-chocolate cake of a wine, with layers of black cherries and creamy ganache, ending in a long, plush finish. This won't be for everyone—I'm not sure I'd want to drink more than a glass or two of it—but it's impressive nonetheless."
