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.

    • PRODUCTION NOTES

      Bottled after 10
      months in old oak, we managed to
      trap it’s youthful exuberance. Yet
      having had 2 years plus of bottle
      ageing, the richness and
      complexing characters are now
      meshing to form a really special
      wine.

    • WINE PROFILE

      VISUALLY: Dark ominous purple,
      with lighter crimson hues.

      NOSE: Leaps out of the glass with
      blackberries, rose petal, rhubarb,
      vanilla, and some tropical fruits.
      Freshly baked scones with newly
      whipped cream and homemade
      raspberry jam.

      PALATE: Decadence meets
      drinkability. It has a lot of
      complexity, real structure with the
      Grenache, softness and spice from
      Mourvedre, and guts and sweet
      fruit from the shiraz, so it’s a wine
      that you could think about for
      hours. But is just as easily thrown
      down the hatch with gay abandon
      due to its goddamn deliciousness.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Do your wines contain sulphur?

    In short, yes. We use a tinsy bit so that we can ensure quality and enable your wine to age well, rather than spoil within a short timeframe like some 'natural' wines.

    Are your wines organic?

    We source our grapes from a number of different growers and some of them are certified organic, and some aren't.

    How much does shipping cost?

    Depends how much you're ordering and where you're shipping to. Generally speaking, the closer you are to Melbourne or Adelaide, the cheaper it will be. All shipping prices are calculated at the checkout, but order 12 or more bottles and receive free shipping.

    Which restaurants / stores stock your wines?

    It changes regularly but you're welcome to contact our distributors
