Mandalay Estate:
In 1997 Bernice and Tony O'Connell bought an 100 acre property on Mandalay Road, Glen Mervyn. as a rural retreat. The plan was to grow a few grapes to make wine for home consumption. The "few grapes" quickly grew to a 10 acre boutique vineyard of Shiraz, Cabernet, Zinfandel and Chardonnay.

In 1997 Bernice and Tony O'Connell bought an 100 acre property on Mandalay Road, Glen Mervyn. as a rural retreat. The plan was to grow a few grapes to make wine for home consumption. The "few grapes" quickly grew to a 10 acre boutique vineyard of Shiraz, Cabernet, Zinfandel and Chardonnay. The vineyard is situated amongst rolling hills just off the Boyup Brook Road between Donnybrook and Collie. Fermoy Estate in Cowaramup make Mandalay Road wines. Liz Dawson and her hard working team year after year produce excellent varietal wines that express the terroir of Mandalay. Fermoy use Mandalay Road Shiraz and Chardonnay in their own "Geographe" label which they export to the UK. The vineyard at Mandalay is planted on a north facing slope of loam over clay. Located 50 km inland, Mandalay experiences warm days and cold nights throughout the year. This temperature variation produces fruit with a wonderful flavour profile. Shiraz from Mandalay is outstanding, the 2007 Shiraz winning Gold medals in 2008 and 2009. The Zinfandel 2006 has won its share of silver medals and is exported to California. The 2007 Zin features in the" Best of the West", Winestate June 2009. The Chardonnay and Cabernet regularly take out bronze medals. James Halliday awarded Mandalay Road 4 stars in his 2009 edition. There is a small, rustic cellar door on the property and we invite you to come off the beaten track, visit us and taste our wines. (See map for details). You can also buy through our secure online shop. Our label depicts an apparently true story.The royal city of Amarapura in Burma was in the wrong place according to the King. He had this city transported on the back of elephants to a new position at the foot of Mandalay Hill and called his city, Mandalay. He is a happy elephant and represents the joy and excitement we have tasting our new wines and sharing them with visitors and friends. Read less
