Manser 'Block 4' Shiraz 2018
Special Price $50.00 Regular Price $55.00
Perched on top of the Manser vineyard is a. small, productive four acres of Shiraz planted on rich, red soil enjoying full sun during the growing season. These vines produce rich, ripe, black fruit with intense flavour forming the majority of their reserve wine. This release is powerful and packs a punch. There’s spicy black and blue fruits on the nose with a curious hint of mintiness to boot. The palate is full bodied supported by a backbone of fine, powdery tannins with a long, rich finish. Decant for an hour or two or cellar for up to 10-15 years
