Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz 2017
WHO IS THE BLUE EYED BOY? The Blue Eyed Boy is Sarah and Sparky’s son, Luke.
Upon smelling this wine, your senses are immediately drawn in by a bouquet of deep blueberry, rich plum and coffee. These prominent fruit flavours are closely followed by chocolate and lustrous licorice spice with creamy vanilla constantly weaving its way through. This beautifully balanced wine is a classic representation of our Blue Eyed Boy: truly a vibrant, ripe, and indulgent experience.

Fun Fact: Blue Eyed Boy is featured in the Qantas President’s Lounge and in Morton’s Steak Houses.
Almost the perfect vintage. We had heat in January, some rain in February just when we needed it, and perfect ripening weather in March with temperatures in the mid 20s (77F). The openness of the canopies and ventilation in the fruit zone gave us lovely clean fruit
Most of our fruit was picked in April, producing great colour and depth. The reds went through primary and malolactic fermentation and barrel maturation in record time. The resulting 2014 wines are amazing. .
