Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 86% Pinotage, 12% Shiraz and 2% Viognier.

Packed with full red-berry flavours, touches of cinnamon and nutmeg spices, and soft tannins, this wine should pair well with most red meats or poultry. The sweet fruit flavours of Pinotage make it an ideal match for spicy curries. A modern-style of Pinotage. Serve at a cool room temperature.

About MAN Vintners:

"This MAN thing all began with three friends and an idea: to make a wine that we ourselves would love to buy. Good quality, good value, good packaging. Not exactly an epiphany, but enough to motivate us into action. What do we name it? Keeping peace in the family, we took the first initials of our wives. (We each have one wife, that is.) So this is how we explained to Marie, Anette, and Nicky that we were going to be "busy" most weekends. It's for you! we told them. And it's mostly true. But MAN is not only about woMAN, it is about MANkind and huMANity as well. Remember, Africa is the cradle of MAN!

For those of you that have experienced South Africa, it won't be a surprise if we state (objectively) that this is the most heavenly spot on earth. The winelands are stunning, with dramatic mountains, lush rolling vineyards, and that African blue sky. Taste a bit of Africa!"
