The Season
Early into the growing season, when the shoots were about 300mm long and very tender, McLaren Vale was hit by a hail storm which passed as a band across Mollydooker’s Gateway (Velvet Glove/Carnival) blocks and the top of Mollydooker’s Coppermine Rd blocks.
 
As a result, the total crop this year was only 759 Tonnes, with Velvet Glove production a third of the previous year.
 
The weather, for the rest of the vintage, was kind, with good winter rains and useful rainfall in each of January, February and March. November was reasonably warm which helped with the flowering.
 
The Vineyard
The Marquis Vineyard is 116 acres of what Mollydooker believes to be absolute prime McLaren Vale vineyards and is on the same region of land as some of McLaren Vale's most famous wines. The vineyard is currently just under 50% Shiraz and the rest is made up of Cabernet, Merlot, Semillon and Chardonnay.
 
The Process
The grapes were grown on the Mollydooker vineyards in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 96% American and 4% French oak using 56% new and 44% one year old barrels.
 
The Experience
The Two Left Feet is a magical blend of Shiraz, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, truly showcasing the characteristics of each grape.  The combination brings complexity and depth to the wine.  Rich fruit and luscious flavours dance upon creamy mouth-feel and firm structure.  Perfectly balanced and intense this wine is exciting and ready to drink!

Mollydooker was founded in 2005 by a fun-loving husband and wife team, Sarah and Sparky Marquis.  The pair met in winemaking college and for Sparky, it was love at first sight.  Sarah and Sparky shared a passion for life, winemaking, entrepreneurship, and left handedness.  A left-handed couple is rare, add on the love for winemaking, it's even more rare - therein gave to the rise of Mollydooker.  Mollyfooker is an Australian slang for "left-hander".
 
Mollydooker winery is situated along the southern coast of Australia in a city just outside of Adelaide called McLaren Vale. Adelaide’s climate is cool and rainy in the winter and hot and dry in the summer ideal for growing grapes.  In combination with the growing conditions and the Marquis' trademark vineyard watering system, "Marquis Vineyard Watering Programme"™ (a method that gave way to exceptional fruit), Mollydooker has crafted award winning and highly rated wines.
 
Mollydooker wine is a work of art on the inside and out.   Not only does each bottle of Mollydooker wine taste delicious, each of their signature labels tell a story about the wine's inspiration - truly a fun-loving piece of art.
