Man Vintners Shiraz (PREMIUM POUR)
Origin: South Africa
Grape Varietal: 100% Shiraz
Winemaking: Hand-harvested at between 24-25°C and given a 2 day cold maceration. Fermentation took place over 5 days in stainless steel tanks with regular pump-overs. Just before dryness, the wine was pressed and put back into the tank for malo-lactic fermentation. 100% of the wine was matured in 225L American oak barrels (8% new). Barrel maturation of 12 months overall.
Tasting Notes: Juicy and complex with well-rounded and lingering flavours. Deep claret in colour, the bouquet is aromatic with gamey and liquorice aromas. The palate has mouth-filling blackcurrant and plan flavours with finely integrated tannins.
Food Pairing: This layered, medium to full-bodied Shiraz will complement slow-cooked casseroles, game and BBQ foods. Served at a cool room temperature.
