MAAN Wines 'Business Maan' Shiraz 2019 (McLaren Vale, South Australia) "...black pepper, satsuma plum, ripe blackberry..."
MAAN was conceived on a booze fuelled rampage, one warm November evening in 2014. On waking 3 days later, the two realised the paperwork had been signed in triplicate and they were in deep with no way of turning back. So when the hangovers had dissipated, they decided to make a go of it.
Anthony, a winemaker by trade, and Matt, an international man of mystery, are cousins and founders of MAAN. The two have a long history of making, selling and drinking quality wines from around the world.
The focus is on producing small batch, handmade wines that showcase the best McLaren Vale has to offer.
"...light and bright crimson colour, with a obvious purple hue running through it. Beautifully lifted nose, very pretty and floral. some violets, rose petal, and juniper. lots of strawberry and even some tropical fruits such as guava. and an intriguing hint of raspberry lemonade, or i guess if you were to break it down, vanilla, red fruits and citrus. A more medium-bodied wine, and dare i say “syrah” in style. a bit of black pepper, satsuma plum, and ripe blackerry flavours. lovely mid-palate weight, but with lingering flavours on the gentle finish . much of the fruit spectrum is in the purple realm, and a lot of the floral characters follow through from the nose to the palate. ready to go now, but will also age nicely for the next 8-12 years." -Winery Notes
