Manser 'Barely Dressed' Shiraz 2016

$30.00
A superb first release Shiraz under the Manser label and as good as you’d expect from this vineyard and wine maker. There’s bright red and blue fruits on the nose, subtle oak and lots of fine tannins. Decant for an hour or so or squirrel away in the cellar for up to 10 years. Sorry, this product is not available individually.

Phil Manser has a long history in the wine industry championing boutique labels from all over Australia and the world. He has teamed up with his brother Kevin and father Bernie and now own and operate a vineyard near Kuitpo just a stone’s throw from McLaren Vale. This vineyard was first established by Tim James, formerly of Hardys and Wirra Wirra, and was planted to four different clones of shiraz planted randomly throughout the vineyard. A time honoured practice from the old world designed to guarantee consistency and complexity from year to year. Fruit from this vineyard has made it’s way to numerous award winning wines including the 2009 Jimmy Watson Trophy. This first release was simply too good to keep locked up in oak for another six months, bursting with bright fruit and beautifully structured it’s ready to enjoy now… barely dressed some would say...

Vintage of the Year 2017

2017 will be known as a very late vintage with an unusually long growing season delaying vintage by nearly a month. In the southern Adelaide Hills, many of us who had staved off disease and kept our canopies healthy chewed nervously on our fruit and glanced hopefully at our weekly analysis with itchy trigger fingers poised to get bird nets off and rip into harvest. A burst of warm weather in early April provided great relief to us and our neighbours as beaumes (sugars) strolled into the low to mid- teens. One last visit to our winemaker Phil Christiansen con rmed what we all suspected, a perfect balance of sugars and acids, fruit poised to make wine with amazing flavour without the usual belting of alcohol we’ve all become accustomed to... time to pick. Excited about the haul Enter the weather. With ‘substantial’

I was always bound for the wine industry. My father had a healthy supply of D'Arenberg reds from the mid-70s to ween me on and I lived a short walk down the road from three wine shops, I had no hope!
