Mandala The Rock Shiraz 2014

Rock. Latin : Petra. Mandala’s Charles Smedley’s father is Peter, his Rock. From 26 year old shiraz vines

Mandala, The Rock, Shiraz, Yarra Valley, 2014

Plaistowe chocolate, white pepper, plum skin, clover, fig and rose petals. Medium to full bodied with blue meaty and plum swathes over spiced rum&raisin choc with that hint of lingering pepper and clover leaf. Cool-ish climate shiraz with little rumbles of tannin. A handsome wine, if not quite reaching the heights of the pinots.
