Velvet Glove Scores Outstanding 96 Points in Wine Advocate Review

The results are in from Wine Advocate’s review of our 2017 vintage wines, and we’re pleased to announce our flagship Velvet Glove Shiraz scored an incredible 96 points! The Wine Advocate has been one of the world’s most trusted authorities in wine for over 30 years, and this is a truly fantastic result.

Here’s what Wine Advocate’s Australian wine expert, Joe Czerwinski had to say:

“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. Drink Date: 2019 – 2030” – JC

There is more good news… our 2017 Carnival of Love scored a fantastic 94 points, Enchanted Path 93 points, Blue Eyed Boy 92 points, Gigglepot 91 points and our Miss Molly also scored 90 points.

It was a terrific vintage for us at Mollydooker Wines, the first solo vintage from our helmswoman Sarah Marquis, and the results have spoken for themselves.
