The magical tale of Mollydooker starts with a love story...
The coming together of two journeys to create all that they love...
The year was 1991, Sarah and Sparky Marquis had recently married on the back of finishing their winemaking studies with the world at their feet. They had each other, they had $1000 between them and they had dreams of developing their own business. They wanted to succeed in a career they were both passionate about, help others when possible, and to always have fun.
Success soon found them as they were named Australian Winemakers of the Year in 1999. Global wine aficionado, Robert Parker from the Wine Advocate, wrote about the wines they made as ‘The greatest red wine values in existence… Run, don’t walk and secure as much as you can of these wines!’ They were also named as one of Robert Parker’s ‘Top Wine Personalities in the World.’
In August 2006, when the Carnival of Love (WA:99) and Enchanted Path (WA:96) were released they sold out in five days!
Rating: 96 Points by Wine Advocate
Tasting Note: The 2005 Enchanted Path (66% Shiraz and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in primarily American oak, 60% new) is fashioned from relatively young vines. It reveals an amazing opaque purple/blue/black color (always a hallmark of Marquis wines), a full-bodied, powerful, smoky nose, extravagant layers of fruit, spice, glycerin, and extract, full body, superb intensity, tremendous richness, and a seamless personality. It is a textbook example of a southern Australian red at its richest, fullest, and most pure. For consumers with open minds and progressive palates, this amazing red should age beautifully for 10-15 years.
Mollydooker是澳洲其中最創新的小型酒莊，以高評分的葡萄酒、創意酒名及每款陳年佳釀的獨特酒標設計而聞名。Mollydooker 酒莊莊主及釀酒家Sarah 及 Sparky Marquis曾獲「年度釀酒家」(Winemakers of the Year)美譽，並由權威酒評家Robert Parker 選為他在全球最推舉的葡萄酒人物之一。他們的佳釀在Wine Advocate 獲高達 99分。更搞鬼是此莊主創造出的搖擺醒酒法（Mollydooker Shake），方法與一般常識、葡萄酒應避免震盪的理念，背道而馳。
