Natalie's Score: 88/100

Absolute wow for this price! Juicy purple plums and flashy dark berries … just roll with it. Smooth and generous. This wine is as comfortable and immediately likeable as your favourite pair of jeans.

Glenda rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

MAN Vintners is one of my favourite producers for quality of wine that far outstrips the price tag. This brand was initially begun as a fun project by Jose Conde and two friends who decided to create wines that they would love to buy. Why MAN Vintner? The range is named after Marie, Annette and Nicky, wives of the team who had to give up weekends in support of the new project.
MAN Vintner is now a huge player on the South African wine scene.
This easy-drinking Shiraz has soft tannins with plum and spice flavours.I like to drink it on it's own or with a slow cooked meat casserole.
Tangy blueberry abundance with cocoa bite. 09 full & rich, dollop viognier adds light violet lift. Score: 3½ (out of 5) Source: Fiona McDonald, Platter's South African Wine Guide

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
