When on the hunt for some top quality Grenache in McLaren Vale, Anthony Neilson was lucky enough to snavel some fruit from Andre and Selina who run the famous Rayner vineyard on the border of Seaview and Blewitt Springs. Anthony has gently nursed this to bottle, preserving all the beautiful aromatics and fine-grained tannins that Grenache from this vineyard is famous for. It's quintessential McLaren Vale Grenache; red fruit and spice galore. With 91 points from Gary Walsh, this will hit the spot for all Grenache fans.
What it Tastes Like
"Fair amount of brown sugar here, sprinkled over rhubarb, strawberry and cherry, sap and dusty spice. Fleshy and succulent, with a pleasing stalkiness mixed in with the rich plum and red fruits, a little warmth comes through, and the finish has sap and grainy tannin to clean it up. Good stuff. Hearty. Value too." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

About the Producer
MAAN wines is a young start up winery from McLaren Vale. They are churning out some super value wines by sourcing fruit from some of the Vale’s best vineyards. Cheeky names, bright packaging and super smashable vino are the things to expect from this vivacious new winery.
The South Australian region of McLaren Vale is famous for its powerful red wines. Shiraz and Grenache have thrived for years in the Vale’s sandy soils. Nowadays, the region’s varietal diversity has majorly increased, the coastal location and warm climate proving perfect for a new wave of varieties from Italy, Spain and Portugal. The success of varieties such as Nero d’Avola, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, and Fiano has transformed McLaren Vale into one of the country’s most vibrant wine scenes. It’s where tradition meets innovation and it is producing some of the Australia’s finest wines.
Grenache is the great sleeping giant of Australian red wine. We are the custodians of the oldest producing Grenache vines in the world, some ancient vineyards planted as far back as the 1850’s. Modern Australian Grenache is a different beast to the wines of yesteryear, they are more youthful and vibrant, showing bright red fruit characters, silky tannins and a delicious array of spices. With the viticultural resources we have at our disposal in this country, Australia can be one of the world’s leading producers of this variety, making wines that easily rival the best of Europe.
