Dapper MAAN Grenache 17
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
Visually: Beautiful deep ruby. Really showcase’s the elegance of the 2017 vintage.
Nose: Boysenberry, cherries, plum in the fruit spectrum. Vanillin, cedar and mocha from the oak. And a touch of spice from the vineyard and barrels. Quite tight, but opens up nicely with some time in glass.
Palate: Luscious and soft tannins make for a deliciously drinkable wine, with well-structured acidity providing the backbone. Lots of juicy purple fruits, and a lasting finish.
Notes: From the unseasonable ’17 vintage where a cooler and extended growing season led to the creation of wines with a lot of finesse and low alcohols, this vintage of the Dapper MAAN Grenache is a different beast. It’s leaner and racier, with a fine elegance. It’s pretty, yet still has a lot of uncoiling to do.
Cellaring potential: Now until 2023.
