Man Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon Western Cape 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A bold and juicy red wine with red-berry fruit flavours and a touch of smoky oak spice and soft tannins. Should go nicely with a wide range of foods, particularly red meats and pasta.

MAN Vintners:
This MAN thing began with three friends and an idea: to make a wine that we ourselves would love to buy. Good quality, excellent value, and cool packaging. Not exactly an epiphany, but enough to motivate us to action. What do we call it? Keeping peace in the family, we took the initials of our wives. (We each have one, that is.)

This MAN thing began with three friends and an idea: to make a wine that we ourselves would love to buy. Good quality, excellent value, and cool packaging. Not exactly an epiphany, but enough to motivate us to action. What do we call it? Keeping peace in the family, we took the initials of our wives. (We each have one, that is.) So that 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. Could've slapped on something cute and furry but the world doesn't need another critter label. We are trying to do something different. It's the WINES we're excited about! Bold and gutsy, reflecting our extreme terroir. Grape growing in the Perdeberg Hills is not for wimps. There is little rainfall, so you have to be in tune with your vineyards. Too much crop or too much stress and you end up with grapes that can't ripen, or worse. But this is grape growing heaven for generations of our farmers. There are no fat, lazy bloated grapes here.

This is the opposite of a critter wine this is a wine to drink with critters. Not too serious but serious enough. A bold and juicy red wine with red-berry fruit flavours and a touch of smoky oak spice and soft tannins. Should go nicely with a wide range of foods particularly red meats and pasta. Serve at a cool room temperature.
