Mandala Shiraz 12pk 2017
Mandala is the vision of the Smedley family of Melbourne. An estate vineyard in Yarra Junction was planted in 1999, with additional vineyards following in Dixons Creek. Specialising in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Mandala wines are high quality, elegant and exceptional value.
Deep, bright red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and bright with pepper-spice and charred-oak aromas and a fair quota of oak. An intense, clearly defined spicy shiraz with concentration and structure, firm tannins and a lingering aftertaste. It has stacks of potential. A smart wine.
