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

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 its way to numerous award-winning wines from several top tier producers.

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!
