Natalie's Score: 89/100

From MAN Vintner, an easy-drinking plummy Shiraz with soft tannins and a splash of viognier lends lift to the mid-palate "MAN" Vintners is so named after Marie, Annette and Nicky, wives of the team who had to give up weekends in support of the new winery project. This easy-drinking Shiraz has plush tannins with plum and spice flavours. A splash of viognier lends a mid-palate lift. Smoky with toasty oak on this finish. Pair with meat lovers' pizza.

Shiraz food pairings: hamburger steak, Salisbury steak bobtje.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Aromas of dark fruit, eucalyptus and cedar. Some smokiness and more fruit in the mouth. Slight floral quality coming from the small amount of Viogner added into the mix. Decent finish with warm spice and noticeable tannins. A very nice wine at an incredible price. Pair with sausage rolls dipped in honey mustard Tasted :Oct 2017
From Coastal Region, South Africa Man Family Skaapveld 2015 is an easy to understand and drinking Shiraz with supple tannins, soft plum and spice on the palate. "MAN" Vintners is so named after Marie, Annette and Nicky, wives of the team who had to give up weekends in support of the new winery project. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
