Manser 'Dad’s Block' Shiraz 2017
A brilliantly structured wine light enough on its feet to drink now. Alternately hide it for up to a decade. Plenty of spice, hints of cocoa and chocolate here along with blue and black fruits. Modern and delicious.

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 who 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.
