For my first vintage at Mollydooker, I was amazed at the color of the Shiraz grapes, coming from the Gateway vineyards. The depth and intensity of color in the juice was amazing and I could see why this fruit is used in the Carnival of Love. You will be blown away by the depth and complexity of this wine. It is a big wine yet remains elegant. There are layers of rich cherry and blackberry fruits, creamy vanilla notes, chocolate and even some pepper and spice. It has great intensity and a silkiness that lingers over the palate.
I love sharing this wine with friends, but I can tell you that once a bottle is open, it's hard not to keep it all for myself.
