Mandala Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

An approachable lunch time claret style of fragrant cabernet of violet perfume and blackcurrant and cassis fruit, sourced from Mandala’s estate vineyard established at Dixon’s Creek 25 years ago. It presents impressive fruit concentration for an elegant and low alcohol cabernet, with notes of lead pencil oak hovering in the background, wrapped in graphite-fine, softly textured tannins. $25 at WineSeek.
