Mandoon Cabernet Merlot 2106 is a remarkable Margaret River Bordeaux blend judged to be the best in Australia and we have it at Australia's best price.
Margaret River has had a string of excellent vintages, but 2016 is considered to be the best of the best, rated 9/10 by Halliday. It's a wine with perfect balance - smooth from start to finish with exceptional length and this reflects it having won 5 gold medals at 5 different wines shows and 2 trophies at 2 different wine shows for best Bordeaux Blend.
Halliday rated it well and wrote:"The 80/20% blend is crushed into open fermenters, 14 days on skins, thence to French hogsheads for 14 months. This isn't ablaze with power and richness, if anything it's the reverse. What it does have is excellent balance, texture and structure. It is a neatly developing gold medal wine with years left in front of it."
While some will buy this wine for their cellar, I think it's darn right delicious right now. It’s lush and full of ripe fruits of the forest, mulberries and cassis. It's very soft and easy to drink and hints of dark chocolate and cigar box spice also show up. This is an impressive cabernet blend from Mandoon with an equally impressive price.
Bordeaux would be happy with this, but you'll never see a Bordeaux of this quality at this price.
Your can buy this wine with absolute confidence. While the big names in Margaret River are always increasing their prices, Mandoon are keeping a lid on theirs and dare I say, this wine has some of those more fancied $50 plus wines covered. Limited stocks
