Flirty MAAN Fiano embodies all the virtues that make us smile knowingly when we hear the term 'flirty'; fresh, playful, cheeky, and even a little bit too easy. A bright, crisp, fruit-driven style with subtle complexity and texture, encapsulated within a deceptively smash-able vino. Go nuts.
This rosè made from grenache grapes is a rosè purists ideal. Pale pink, with slight apricot hues and with a crisp, clean line of acidity. It is great right there. But wait, there's more... with flavours of red apple, boysenberry and a hint of sherbert, it's a delicious wine. And after spending a few months on lees in old oak, with continual stirring of the barrels, it's developed a lovely weight and a touch of mid-palate texture to help round out the mouthfeel.
Wine wank aside, all these pieces add up to an alarmingly smashable rosè, that is amazing by itself, or a great match for vietnamese/thai food as well as a simple cheese plate. Lookout.
The Dapper MAAN Grenache embodies all the virtues we associate with the term "dapper"; Elegance, style, generosity, class, sophistication and of course handsomeness.
In wine terms that equates to a delicate and pretty wine, with a soft, supple mouthfeel. Full of flavours of sweetfruits, spice and subtle oak. Perfect for any drinker with a brain... or heart
Handy MAAN GMS embodies all the virtues we associate with the term "Handy"; Accesible, practical, convenient, ever versatile and always great value. The blend of these 3 varieties gives this wine a perfect balance of power and restraint. The Grenache gives lifted flavours of strawberry and guava; The Mourvedre, spice and complexity; And the Shiraz, colour and guts. Making it a wine which offers something for everyone, in any situation.
Would you like to try something fascinating and exceptionally rare? Something so special, that naming it wouldn't do it justice? Thought so.
Hold onto your hats folks, this one is effusive and gorgeous, it's tough to keep your mitts from opening every bottle in your possession.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from a clandestine Seaview sub-region vineyard in McLaren Vale. Very low yielding, incredible fruit that requires little to no irrigation that we lucked upon.
The grower is incredibly meticulous, and wanted the fruit to go to someone who'd treat it with the love and respect that he had put into it.
Meticulous love and care, incredible fruit and some of the best French oak have gone into this wine which in our opinion is the truest example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Get some before it all goes.
