Miss Molly Sparkling Shiraz

Miss Molly Sparkling Shiraz

Miss Molly Sparkling Shiraz

Miss Molly is the Boxer’s girlfriend, bubbly and full of fun.

Vivacious and full of class, Miss Molly is brimming with vivid maraschino cherry and plum jam that progress into layers of milk chocolate and mocha. Toffee and cinnamon notes intermix throughout the flavour spectrum as the bubbles add an undeniable vibrancy to the mouth feel. This wine is a lively celebration of McLaren Vale Shiraz, fitting for any occasion.

The grapes were grown on the Longbottom vineyard in Padthaway, the Birchmore vineyard in Langhorne Creek and the Hunt Creek, Semmens and Mollydooker vineyards in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 100% American oak using 32% new and 68% one year old barrels. The Boxer has gone through a secondary fermentation allowing us to create this beautiful sparkling wine.

Heavy rain in the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek regions during July, an incredible 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 Mollydooker’s open canopies allowed air flow and, with perfect summer temperatures, grapes were not affected.

Barrel fermented and matured in 100% American oak of which 37% new; 59% one year old; 4% two year old.

McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale is predominately a red wine region, producing some of the best red wines in South Australia. Vineyards were first planted in the mid 1800s. One of the early pioneers Thomas Hardy established a business that evolved to BRL Hardy, one of the largest wine companies in the country. The region also has a healthy number of boutique wineries that consistently make fine wines and experiment with different wine styles. The climate is warm to hot with dry summers, and benefits from cooling breezes from the St Vincent Gulf. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz (rich, ripe & generous), Cabernet Sauvignon; White – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc.

Shiraz

flourish in a range of climates. In the warm to hot climates you can expect extremely intense aromatic, rich, full bodied wines, with hugh fruit (almost sweet) and chocolately tasting. In the more moderate/cooler climates you’re more likely to find structured Shiraz wines with black cherry, pepper and spice characters rather than the chocolate and fruit styles found in warmer climates.
