Mollydooker is an affectionate Aussie term for Left-Hander because both Sarah and Sparky Marquis the husband and wife winemaking team based in McLaren Vale Australia are both lefties! Besides being left-handed, Sarah & Sparky are some of the most decorated winemakers in the world. They have received more 94-99 point scores from Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate than other winemakers in the world.
They have been awarded with five 99-point scores in the last 10 years. Five of their wines have been chosen in the Wine Spectator's "Top 100" and their Carnival of Love Shiraz has made the "Top 10" list (two years in a row). Sarah & Sparky have been named "Australian Winemakers of the Year", have been chosen by Robert Parker among the "Top Wine Personalities in the World" and have been crowned "McLaren Vale's Bushing King and Queen" a record three times
Mollydooker is Australian for left hander. What Texans would call a southpaw. Both Sarah and Sparky are left handers and the winery is named after them. The Scooter is Sparky, who used to race 30 kilometres on a big tyre scooter. The 2013 Scooter has racy acid that really brightens the fruit, a vibrant and perfumed wine with great plummy intensity. The tannins are soft and supple while the subtle oak compliments the abundant fruit. Balanced yet expressive the Scooter is joyous and enjoyable.
