Mollydooker The Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz 2017

Vintage Report

With heavy rain in the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek regions during July, we saw a massive 31% increase in rainfall. These cold, wet conditions continued through to early summer, becoming the defining features of the 2017 vintage. Budburst and flowering were both delayed, resulting in a later harvest than normal. In the lead up to harvest there were concerns of mildew and botrytis affecting the grape quality, however due to our open canopies allowing air flow and perfect summer temperatures, our grapes were not affected. 

The Fruit

Weight and flavours needed time to develop in the vineyards before we could begin crafting the wines in the winery. Our patience was well rewarded with plenty of bright, vibrant fruit. Primary ferments were vigorous and healthy; some were cooled to 3.5c to slow down the fermentation to allow maximum colour and flavour to be extracted from the skins. 2017 was one of our biggest and most successful vintages to date.

Winemaker Tasting Notes

The 2017 vintage is no exception with the expressive rich fruit that has long been the trademark for this favoured Shiraz. The alluring nose offers fresh plum and mocha, whilst blueberry and plum jam mingle harmoniously with milk chocolate to create a deliciously silky mouthfeel. Generous and dynamic, the Blue Eyed Boy exceeds all expectations.
