- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Lovers of GSM blends will know all too well that these blends are seldom found under $20 a bottle. Here is something of an aberration.
This is McLaren Vale Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre from some well-respected vineyards in the region. Grenache from the Rayner vineyard, Shiraz grown by Coriole and Mourvedre from some 15-year-old vines in Willunga.
It’s not complicated or complex. But it is honest, tasty, jubey red wine which is super versatile and incredibly easy to knock back. Perfect mid-week quaffing. Get the pizzas ready.
What It Tastes Like
Sweet red fruits, raspberry, rhubarb, a little hint of rosy perfume and some dark chocolate. It’s a simple yet tasty mouthful of wine. Soft tannin, fruit glides with ease through the mouth. A smashable red built for a pizza night in.

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.
