Wine tasting notes

Distinctive aromas of ripe plum and pepper spices, mouth-filling sweet red-berry flavours and gentle tannins characterize this wine. A touch of Viognier was co-fermented with the Shiraz for the aromatic lift it gives to the wine, which emphasises the berry fruit and spice aromas on the nose. The American oak barrels give a hint of vanilla spice and contribute to the smooth silky tannins.

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."

Vinification notes

The Agter-Paarl region is known for its characteristic "winegum" character - a very pure "grapey" fruit expression. We co-ferment some batches with a small portion of Viognier grapes to lift the aromatics and soften the tannins. 20% of the wine matures in small oak barrels for that hint of vanilla spice on the nose and to give extra encouragement to silky tannins. All in all, we like to think we've made a really great wine - and it helps to know that so many other people think so too.
