ST. LOUIS – Megan Greco, a blogger for STL Wine, Spirits, and Entertainment, visits Studio STL to showcase the Mollydooker Shake, a wine made with nitrogen so you have to shake it before you drink it!

She showcases “The Boxer” Mollydooker Shiraz from McLaren Vale in Australia. Shiraz is the same grape as Syrah. Mollydooker uses a smaller amount of sulfites in the wine because they believe people are sensitive to them. Rather than adding more sulfites to the wine when bottling, nitrogen is added instead. Megan purchased the wine from the new Clayton Wine House.

How to do the Mollydooker Shake:

  1. Open the bottle and pour half a glass
  2. Put the cap back on
  3. Flip the bottle over and shake. If you really want to do it Mollydooker style, use you left hand (Mollydooker is Aussie for “lefty”).
  4. You’ll see little bubbles rise to the top of the bottle (this is the nitrogen). You can hear it!
  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4
  6. Pour yourself a glass! Pour me a glass! & Enjoy!
