Mannenberg Shiraz: New Wine: Wine Man Pick

Mannenberg Shiraz

Well, well, well. This bottle was opened on a night when I felt really adventurous. Very, very surprisingly good and for little money. The stable-mates both do a great job for little money also, and turn up in restaurants at very reasonable prices too (especially the Chenin Blanc), but due to it’s south African origin, few are aware or interested. Pity.
