The Velvet Glove is an Australian Shiraz with strength, depth and finesse. The 2016 has a perfumed nose of berries and mixed spice. The first sip gives way to juicy blackberry and cassis, followed closely by decadent dark chocolate and black pepper notes. With the depth of licorice, and a cherry like intensity; the fine lattice of tannins are seamless amongst the fruit, yet still provide that opulent mouthfeel that Velvet Glove is consistently notorious for.A wine of pure indulgence.

Wine AdvocateThe only one of the Mollydooker wines that even hints at needing some bottle age is the 2016 Velvet Glove Shiraz. Hints of hay or alfalfa mark the nose, along with huge raspberry and blueberry fruit. It's full-bodied, rich and tannic on the palate, picking up hints of chocolate and raisin on the long finish. I wouldn't suggest cellaring it too long, in case the dried-fruit notes come too much to the fore.

Wine SpectatorFloral white pepper notes announce the juicy core of black tea, plum and tangy cherry flavors, with toasty shadings of spice and cedar that linger on the finish. Shows plenty of harmony and detail against velvety tannins. The density and power sneak up on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 899 cases made.
