Mollydooker
Shiraz McLaren Vale Carnival of Love 2006

Carnival of Love is made with grapes from three contiguous blocks of the Gateway Vineyard, the same site that produces the Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove. Sarah and Sparky Marquis find that they best capture color and fresh fruit character by fermenting Shiraz at relatively low temperatures. They bottled the wine after nine months of barrel-aging it in two sets of 100 percent new American oak.
