Happy Harry's Direct Offer #4Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz 2017
Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz 2017
Dark in color, deep in flavor and rich in texture; the Velvet Glove is the apex of our pursuits and the epitome of our Fruit Weight expression. Sticky plum jam and spicy nutmeg aromas are alluringly prominent on the nose, while berries and mocha weave and envelop your entire palate. The finish is incredibly smooth and silky, with elegant fruit flavors that linger in your mouth. An outstanding example of a perfectly balanced Shiraz from McLaren Vale.

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 flavors 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 color and flavor to be extracted from the skins. 2017 was one of our biggest and most successful vintages to date. – Vitners Report
