Wine tasting notes

A modern style that showcases the best Pinot Noir-like characteristics of Pinotage. Juicy bright fruits, soft tannins and a perfumed nose make this a very accessible Pinotage.We like to focus on the juicier, softer side of Pinotage by carefully managing the fermenting wine. We are able to emphasise the soft mouthfeel, perfume and expressive fruit of Pinotage. Just a touch of oak maturation means the result is delicate and pretty, with beautiful red berry flavours, a hint of cinnamon and very gentle tannins. Deliciously moreish.

Winery information

MAN Family Wines

M?A?N Family Wines began in 2001 when three friends got together with the aim of making wine that they?d love to buy - quality wine with smart packaging, but at price they could afford.Next they needed a name that would unite their three families, but particularly appeal to their wives after they?d unsuccessfully convinced them that their winemaking venture was a sacrifice rather than a lot of fun. To keep the peace in the families, they took their wives? initials - Marie, Anette and Nicky ? to create M?A?N Family Wines.Owners Jos? Conde and brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh are supported by 30 dedicated grape growers from the Agter-Paarl region who are also shareholders in the business. All M?A?N growers are accredited as environmentally sustainable and socially responsible farmers by the South African Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) scheme and the South African Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association (WIETA).Production may have grown from just 300 cases made in a tractor shed to over 175,000 cases per year, but they still make wines that are modern and distinctive with a touch of Old World elegance. They are wines that they like to call "daily wines for wine geeks."

Food matching

Pinotage goes well with a wide range of foods. It's the only wine for eel, and the sweet fruit flavours make it an ideal match for spicy curries. Also the perfect complement to a steaming bowl of 'roo stew!

Vinification notes

Fermented in stainless steel tanks over 5 days with frequent pump - overs. At around 8 degrees balling, the skins were removed and the wine was pressed and racked back to tank for completion of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. 25% of the wine was matured in American oak barrels (20% new) for 15 months. F ined and filtered before finishing
