Unconventional. Whimsical. Intense. Fruit Forward. Exuberance. These are all great words to describe the wines of Mollydooker from McLaren Vale in Southern Australia, where they "make wines that make people go 'WOW'!"
Mollydooker, which is an Aussie slang term for a left-hander, is owned by left-handed husband and wife winemaking team Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Their wines are fruit-forward, high-alcohol wines and to really appreciate them is to know their story and to meet the exuberant owners, which I got to do recently when Sarah was in Los Angeles to host a lunch at BOA Steakhouse.
