(1888PressRelease) September 26, 2008 - Super star, husband and wife winemaking team, Sarah & Sparky Marquis have done it again, by producing another of the world’s best value-priced red wines! 2007 marks the third release of this incredible Shiraz – The Boxer - loved by critics, restaurants and consumers alike.
2007 Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz has already been named in the Wine Spectator Insider as one of the “Editor’s Most Exciting New Wines” with a 90 point score! Harvey Steiman had this to say: “supple and generous. A lithe mouthful of spicy blackberry and tar flavors, lingering effortlessly with a thin veil of fine tannins. Drink now through 2013.”

Nick’s Nose Knows, a respected wine reviewer and merchant in Australia awarded the new Boxer with an astounding 98 points.
On Sept 9th, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate released their “Top Value Australian Wines” list and 2006 The Boxer Shiraz was the fourth highest rated wine with 94 points! This same vintage was an enormous hit and was also rated as the “Most Popular Shiraz on American Restaurant Wine Lists” by Wine & Spirits magazine and chosen by Harvey Steiman at the Wine Spectator as the 3rd Best Value Red Wine from Australia with 90 points!
The word Mollydooker actually means ‘Aussie for left-hander’, so the label was designed to show a double Mollydooker – or in this case, a boxer with two left gloves. One thing’s for sure, The Boxer is so good and so affordable, it’ll knock you out!
Sarah and Sparky are both left-handed winemakers and craft 11 wines in total for their own Mollydooker label. The Boxer Shiraz is one of five in their Lefty Wines series which also includes Two Left Feet Shiraz/Cabernet/Merlot, The Maitre D’ Cabernet Sauvignon, The Scooter Merlot, and the only white wine Sarah and Sparky make – The Violinist Verdelho. All are priced at $25 per bottle and have achieved a Marquis Fruit Weight™ score of 65-70%.
Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz and all the other Lefty wines, both red and white, are available for purchase direct from the winery via Mollydooker’s USA website http://www.mollydookerwines.com and can be shipped to most states from their warehouse in Napa, CA.
Remember to prepare all your new 2007 Mollydooker wines, including The Boxer Shiraz with a good Mollydooker Shake!
