The nose is full of attractive dark cherry characters, plums and an aroma of olive. The palate is medium to full bodied, with wonderfully ripe black fruit complimented by spice notes. 2013 was an exceptional vintage for Mandala Wines and the Yarra Valley region overall, with the 2013 Merlot receiving 94 points from the James Halliday Tasting Notes 2016. This wine will only improve and mature with cellaring time, with the suggested time of around 5-10 years.
