Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz 2018
WHAT IS THE VELVET GLOVE?
The wine that wraps your entire palate in a ‘Velvet Glove’ of amazing fruit flavours that seem to last forever.
Dense, dark and brooding in the glass, the 2018 Velvet Glove Shiraz is complex and sumptuous. Black plum, blueberries and roasted coffee intermingle with anise in its lifted fragrance. A supremely smooth molten chocolate mouthfeel accentuates the precise balance of infinitely complex structure, expressing deep flavours of berries, whilst liquorice and allspice linger on the palate. 2018 has produced a Velvet Glove of incredible eminence and elegance that is truly the pinnacle of Mollydooker Wines.
