Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
Mandoon are a Swan Valley operation of great provenance, their homestead vineyard being an ancient block established on the first rural grant in Western Australia, circa 1929 at a property named Sandalford. Always on the lookout for exceptional parcels of fruit, the highly decorated Mandoon team have focused on a northern block of Research Station Vineyard in Margaret River. A scrupulous excise of the most rigorous pick, is treated to the most exacting standards of vinification and a term of age in the finest coopered French oak.
Deep, dark scarlet red. Liifted bouquets of redcurrant and plum, blackberries and bramble fruit, complemented by perfumed notes of cedar and lithe spice. The richly flavoured, velvet textured palate is defined by its intensity and measured by the most exquisite balance, fine grained oak tannins, exemplary structure and generous complexity before a long, persistent finish.
