MollyDooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz 2011

“People felt themselves watching him even before they knew that there was anything different about him. His eyes made a person think that he heard things that no one else had ever heard, that he knew things no one had ever guessed before. He did not seem quite human.” ? Carson McCullers (The Heart is a Lonely Hunter)

Boy crazy? If you’re talking about Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz, Wine Harlots will admit to our infatuation. The wine is hot and heavy with a high alcohol content balanced with vanilla notes from the oak with bushels of succulent dark cherry, refreshing plums and lush blackberries.

The perfect pairing? We are enamored of the seductive Prosciutto-wrapped Burgers with Blue Cheese, Arugula and Plum Ketchup. The fruity-sweetness of the shiraz can handle the intense flavors of the cured prosciutto, spicy arugula, earthy cheese and savory sauce. The music match is “Behind Blue Eyes” by The Who from the album Who’s Next. Go pick up a bottle, you too might have a crush on a Blue Eyed Boy.

The details: 16% alcohol. Closure: screw-cap. Grape: shiraz. Appellation: McLaren Vale. Suggested retail: $60 USD. Actual retail: $22-60. The wine was a media sample provided for editorial consideration.
