Overview of the Wine
The Manser family’s interest in wine dates back to a deal made in the late 60s with the publican of the Renmark Hotel.  After a beer and a handshake, Bernie Manser relieved him of some so-called dead stock and drove off with a trailer load of booze, axles straining under the weight of Hardys, Pirramimma and D’Arenberg reds, and the odd bottle of Grange.

This treasure-trove was consumed with relish at many a BBQ and dinner party during the 70s and 80s and, when Bernie’s sons Phil and Kevin came of age, it gave them a taste for classic Australian red wine.

Phil was first to pursue a career in the wine industry, working in independent retail and wholesale, before supporting small and medium winemakers to tell their stories online and connect with wine lovers. Along the journey, Phil worked in vineyards across the southern vales to get hands-on experience and develop his passion for the industry.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Sandy soil offering excellent drainage and resistance to disease and parcels bought in from a wonderful 100 year old Grenache vineyard in McLaren Flat. The vines are 65 and 100 years old respectively producing fruit of uncommon intensity and flavour. This wine is flavoursome showing chocolate, spice and a sweet earthy palate finishing with powdery tannins and length. Enjoy now or cellar up to 10 years.
