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.

The most dense and concentrated of the current Mollydooker offerings is the 2018 Velvet Glove Shiraz. Because of that, it's also among the most fruit-forward, with the oak elements of vanilla, mocha and cedar pushed into the background in favor of ripe raspberries and blackberries. Taut and focused for its size, this full-bodied effort is smooth and creamy textured on the palate, where the fruit glides into a long, velvety finish.

Offers impressive purity, concentration and focus, with a core of ripe, round and very generous blackberry and cherry flavors, set on a thick and plush frame. Dark chocolate, dried rosemary, clove, tobacco and subtle smoke accents add to the complexity and long, impressive finish. Drink now through 2037. 1,213 cases made, 32 cases imported.
