Wine Taste Weekly Newsletter
"Mandala Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010. 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. Drink: 2012-2025, 92 Points."

'Best Buy Wines' - Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine
"2010 Mandala Shiraz, Yarra Valley. This shiraz has surprising density and structure for a Yarra Valley wine, albeit from the warm side of the valley at Dixon's Creek. it has a deep red-purple hue and a nutmeg touch to its spicy aromas, laced with a trace of fresh earth. The palate has a lot of flesh and depth, with liberal tannins, and the structure is balanced by delicious fruit sweetness. It's drinking well now but has a lot of potential for cellaring, too. Drink now to 2025."

'Easy Wines' - Central Telegraph
"2012 Mandala Pinot Noir: Ripe flavoursome berries in this excellent pinot from one of the Yarra Valley's best wineries. A pinot to look out for and one for the rack. 94/100"
- Peter Chapman, March 2013
'One to Note: Mandala'
"Mandala in Victoria's Yarra Valley has released an interestingly quite soft and delicate 2011 Pinot Noir made from 80 per cent fruit from the company's Yarra Junction vineyard and 20 per cent from its Dixons Creek. Forever fastidious about their fruit, Mandala discarded 30 per cent of what they picked, retaining only the best 70 per cent for this wine that's got soft raspberry, cherry and strawberry fruit flavours on the palate, nice acidity, fine oak tannins and earthy and savoury notes."
- David Ellis, March 2013
