Porthos | The Wine Insiders
mollydooker_logo.jpg For 12 years, Sarah & Sparky Marquis (pronounced Mar-kwis) have been "WOW"ing wine fans around the world with their award-winning Australian wines made for such brands as Fox Creek, Henry's Drive, Parsons Flat, Shirvington, Marquis Philips, Integrity and now Mollydooker. This dynamic duo has been awarded the title of Australian Winemakers of the Year; is the only husband and wife winemaking team to receive Mclaren Vale's prestigious Bushing Award three times; and is responsible for crafting four of only 24 Australian wines to receive 99 points from Robert Parker in the last 10 years.

When asked to share their thoughts on what separates Mollydooker wines from the pack, Sarah & Sparky answer "It's our Watering Programme and Fruit Weight, mate." The Marquis Vineyard Watering Programme™ focuses on nurturing strong and healthy vines with balanced canopy growth to achieve the most intense fruit flavors possible. The amazing fruit flavor achieved in the vineyard is exactly what creates the Marquis Fruit Weight™ in the wine. Marquis Fruit Weight™ is the "velvet glove" sensation of fruit that sits on your tongue before the structure of the wine is exposed. The higher the Fruit Weight, the more intense and rich are the flavors in the finished wine.
