Brian Pasch Reviews 2009 Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz
After what many winemakers are referring to as an excellent growing season in Australia, the Mollydooker winery shared their entire 2009 portfolio of Australian wines with wine blogger Brian Pasch. Pasch visited the Mollydooker winery in April 2010 for the exclusive opportunity to be the first to taste and review the entire 2009 Mollydooker portfolio.
First on the review list from Pasch was the 2009 Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz and his full review is posted on Corkd.com. Part of what makes Mollydooker Wines so unique is that their portfolio can vary based on the quality of fruit harvested. The vineyard fruit is scored based on its Marquis Fruit Weight™ score. For example, the Velvet Glove is only produced from vineyards that have a 95% Fruit Weight score.
According to Pasch, the 2009 Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz is exemplifies Mollydooker’s talented winemaking team of Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Pasch added, “What makes the 2009 Velvet Glove Shiraz near perfect is the amazingly rich, velvety texture that has a finish that goes in your mouth for over 30 seconds. I have tasted all the past vintages of the Velvet Glove and this could be the very best every made.”

This is one wine that is bottled as beautifully as it goes down. To honor the beauty and individuality of the Mollydooker 2009 Velvet Glove Shiraz, it is sealed in a unique bottle that is branded with a real velvet label printed in silver foil, and then placed in a gorgeous velvet bag embroidered with silver thread.
