What is a Mollydooker?

September 2, 2019

So what is a Mollydooker, and why you should care. A mollydooker is an Australian expression for a left-handed person. The term itself being Aussie slang for a “left hander’, was a befitting name for a new company in 2005 as both co founders are left handers, hence the name, Mollydooker.

 

Mollydooker Wines Pty Ltd is based in the McLaren Vale wine region in South Australia. It was founded by Sarah and Sparky Marquis in 2005. As of a few years ago it is now owned and operated by Sarah who was the Australian Woman in Wine Award winner of “ Owner / Operator of the Year Award 2018”

 

Mollydooker has an established reputation for producing world-class wines. For instance, the 2006 Velvet Glove Shiraz was awarded 99 points by Robert Parker. Additionally, the winery's Carnival of Love Shiraz placed among the top ten wines by Wine Spectator for both the 2006 and 2007 vintages. In 2014, Wine Spectator awarded the 2012 vintage of Carnival of Love Shiraz the number two wine in the world and the accolades continue to pile up every year. Their unique and specialized vineyard watering program is what they believe makes their grapes the best they can be and based on all the accolades we think they are on to something.
