Mandoon Estate sauvignon blanc 2016 ($23.50)

Pure and pristine savvy sourced from Margaret River. There is a racy mouthfeel here with crunchy citrus laced tropical fruit characters on the nose and palate. A little passionfruit pulp and a smidgeon of oak fermentation add to the overall complexity. Excellent wine for the short term.

SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 3 years

Mandoon Estate verdelho 2015 ($22.50)

Scrumptious verdelho displaying subtle tropical fruit characters that have been slightly muted with the extra year in bottle. A little citrus, a little passionfruit and plenty of tropical flavours. Stacks up beautifully for current drinking but with the potential to age for a few years.

SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 4 years

Mandoon Estate cabernet merlot 2014 ($30.50)

The fruit for this excellent cabernet blend comes from the old Margaret River Research Station. Mature vines equal deep and concentrated fruit of impeccable balance. Intense and generous wine with tight controlling tannins and fine oak with a touch of graphite minerality holding the lines through to the finish.

SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 7 years

Mandoon Estate Old Vine shiraz 2014 ($29.50)

These older vineyards date back to the mid 1950s and are now supplying some pretty handy plush plummy fruit towards this wine. The approach has been a gentle winemaking technique to preserve the essential soft fruit characters. Generous soft and supple palate with lovely oak and fruit balance. Like that minerally chalky tannin influence on the finish.

SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 7 years

Mandoon Estate Reserve shiraz 2011 ($49)

This super concentrated yet elegantly finished shiraz has been sourced from Frankland River. It is a wonderful wine that has scored heavily at wine shows including winning the consumer choice award at the Qantas Wine Show last year. Lush and opulent with typical Frankland density and concentration, plus that lovely blueberry flavour permeating the palate. So seamless and smooth, this is wonderful.

SCORE 96/100 CELLAR 12 years

Mandoon Estate Research Station cabernet sauvignon 2012 ($75)

This beautiful expression of Margaret River cabernet was wine of the show at the Qantas Wine Show last year. It is a superb wine of balance, poise and style, yet with so much underlying power and drive. Everything is perfectly placed with the use of oak and management of tannins perfect. A terrific wine that will reward cellaring.
