In the wake of several very warm vintages, some mid-priced South Australian reds have begun to display a sameness. Tricked up, too ripe or insufficient tannin and acidity to balance the sweetness of the fruit make for shortlived love affairs with many consumers. For others such styles have remained popular - perhaps because these wines appeal instinctively to sweeter tastes. There are producers who've managed to create more individual reds that while reflective of vintage conditions, retain a sense of freshness, structure and balance. Like the Warrabilla wines featured in last months Vintage Direct, the 2009 Mollydooker Collection demonstrates creative, skilled viticulture and winemaking winning over natural adversity and market inertia. The wines are also an extension of two very exuberant and talented personalities, left handed winemakers, Sarah & Sparky Marquis.
Saturated opaque black crimson colour with black heart and very deep black crimson hue. The nose is at first restrained but with some coaxing reveals heavy scents of blackberry, plum, liquorice allsorts, confectionary and blackpepper. The palate comes out punching: Opulent, mouthfilling flavours of blackberry, liquorice and dark plum are followed by some confectionary notes. A very peppery back palate attack is more prominent in this years Boxer than previous vintages, adding complexity. Velvet smooth tannins.Very long aftertaste of blackpepper, liquorice and confectionary. Cellar 3-4 years (2013-2014).
