2014 Mollydooker, "The Boxer" Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Press and Tasting Notes

Bright and jazzy, offering an effusive mouthful of cherry, pomegranate and spice flavors that are as aromatic as they are long and vivid. This has density without great weight, and the finish keeps on going.

THE REVIEW

WOW is the word most commonly used to describe this blockbuster Shiraz. Released only once a year, this fantastic Australian red is due to arrive in the next 7-10 days. The wine is always in demand and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
    Receiving 91 points from Wine Spectator, the 2008 Boxer is no stranger to tremendous accolades. It is a former Wine Spectator Top 100 member and in 2006 it was on Spectator's Best Value Wine List. At a Mollydooker dinner I tasted the entire line-up from The Boxer to the The Carnival Of Love (another 2x Wine Spectator Top 100 member) to The Velvet Glove. While they were all outstanding, I could not justify spending an additional $100 on the Carnival Of Love and another $200 on The Velvet Glove when compared to The Boxer. Simply put, The Boxer held its own quite well against those powerhouses.
    This delicious red is a tremendous value which shows power, structure, complexity and length with amazing opulent black fruit and spice. Bright and jazzy, offering an effusive mouthful of cherry, pomegranate and spice flavors that are as aromatic as they are long and vivid. The wine has density, and the finish is long, lasting and silky.
    The Boxer pairs fantastically with grilled rib-eye with sweet carrot puree. It also goes well with just about any savory, full-flavored meats such as roasted lamb, beef short ribs or even spice-rubbed or barbecued chicken. It is especially delicious with salted marcona almonds and milk chocolate! Enjoy! Read More »
