2017 Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

HK$1,700.00

Tasting Notes:

Distinctive, featuring a ripe, plush, creamy core of raspberry coulis and maraschino cherry flavors, with sophisticated notes of dark chocolate, rosemary and cigar box lingering in the background, showing some restraint. In the end, this delivers plenty of harmony on the long, lush and velvety finish. Drink now through 2029. 1,602 cases made, 224 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

The 2017 Velvet Glove Shiraz is reminiscent of a lush, chocolate-covered raspberry, a mouth-filling one imbued with a uniquely plush, supple texture and a lingering finish. There are hints of mint, pepper and anise to bring complexity and a slight savory-herbal edge, but much of this wine's considerable charm is in the way it feels in the mouth—caressing, expansive and complete.

Tasting Notes:

This makes such a big fruit statement. Richly spiced dark berries and plums, dark chocolate, plum pudding, raisins and cookie dough. The palate has a very ripe, ultra rich and essence-like feel, soft tannins and a slippery, ripe finish. Extremely ripe. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
