89 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Attractive spice and herb shadings appear on the nose of Mollydooker’s 2017 The Boxer Shiraz. Peppermint, dark chocolate and licorice all bring nuance to the dark berry fruit. Full-bodied and ripe (16% alcohol), it’s nevertheless a relatively tame, well-behaved beast, with supple tannins and an easygoing, silky finish.”
Complex and expressive, the 2017 Boxer exudes vivacity whilst maintaining great length. Bright maraschino cherry, fresh plum, rich dark chocolate and liquorice max out the flavour spectrum. The tannins are fine, the fruit is soft and the flavours tickle the taste buds. Consistently impressive and seriously good, this wine is not short of character.
