2016 Mangan East Block Magnum

  • This quality wine was produced on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. The grapes were harvested from the prime selections of the eastern blocks of the Mangan vineyard. Excellent growing season with good spring rains. This vintage is a blend of 51% Petit Verdot and 49% Malbec. It was naturally fermented, basket pressed and then matured for 7 months in equal portions of new and seasoned French oak.

  • 2016 Vintage Report

    We were happy to have the 2016 harvest. It followed three vintages of tiny yields which left us with very little wine to sell!
    The vintage had average yields and the rain that fell in January 80mm, and then February 15mm, and March 10 mm, had no effect at all on the fruit quality. The resultant wines have a wonderful aromatic quality and elegance, particularly in Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
    Great vintage for Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and in the reds Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

  • Colour: Bright deep purple.
    Bouquet: Violet, cherries and spicy notes creating a captivating bouquet.
    Palate: Structured but juicy with blood plums and mulberry fruit. Balanced and refined tannins carrying the finish complemented by the Petit Verdot acidity.
    Cellar: At least 10 years.
    Food: Margaret River Venison with charred root vegetables.
