Product Overview

The 2018 Mollydooker Carnival Of Love Shiraz is a bold, lively, and expressive Shiraz that begins with raspberry and cassis leading the aromatics, with soft hints of butterscotch. The red fruits are rich with layers of toffee and coconut weaving through the darker plummy fruit that fills the palate. Mocha and spice add more dimensions to an already impressive array of flavors, creating a true celebration of single vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz.

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"Mollydooker's 2018 Carnival of Love Shiraz is more red-fruited and structured than I expected, given the wine's stated 16% alcohol. Raspberries and cedar mark the nose, with hints of chocolate, espresso and baking spices. In the mouth, it's full-bodied, dense and powerful, with ripe but firm tannins supporting the bright berry flavors, then easing into a long, velvety and mouthwatering finish. It should drink well for around a decade, but if you're shy of tannins, you may want to wait another year or two before opening." -JC, 7/31/20

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Aromatic and distinctive, with chai tea, black walnut liqueur and sandalwood details to the plump blackberry and kirsch flavors at the core. Generous and ripe, but the spice and cigar box elements on the finish add a restrained punctuation point. Drink now through 2035. 3,806 cases made, 1,148 cases imported." -MW, 3/31/20
