Brief Description

Tasting Notes

MAN Syrah is distinctive, juicy, complex with well rounded and lingering flavours. The bouquet is aromatic with gamey and liquorice aromas. The palate has mouth filling blackcurrant and plum flavours with finely integrated tannins. The finish is deep and lingering with pepper, spice and vanilla.


The Grapes originate from several premium, un-irrigated vineyards in the Agter-Paarl area of South Africa. The soils of Malmesbury Shale retain water amazingly proficiently and thus produce very small, heavily flavoured grapes producing wines exhibiting concentrated fruit flavours and the minerality characteristic of the region.

The grapes were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness and given a two day cold maceration. Fermentation took place over 5 days in stainless steel tanks.

The Shiraz (Syrah) grapes were co-fermented with a small portion of Viognier grapes to lift the aromatics of the wine and soften the tannins.

36% of the wine was matured in 225 litre American oak barrels (8% new) for 12 months. Fined and filtered before bottling.

Ideal with...

Good piece of red meat, slow cooked stews and barbecued meat.
