Man Vintners Free-Run Steen Chenin Blanc 2015


Product Description

91WA "The 2015 Free Run Steen Chenin Blanc has an attractive nose with fresh grapefruit and passion fruit scents that are well defined and articulate the variety with clarity. The palate is well balanced with crisp grapefruit and light honeyed tones, very harmonious with well judged acidity and a composed, quite elegant finish. This is an excellent Chenin Blanc. I was very impressed by the selection of recent releases from MAN Family Wines. Winemaker François Bezuideenhout knows how to fashion a well crafted wine at absurdly friendly prices. These come highly recommended." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 91 points!

100% Chenin Blanc, aged in stainless steel on sur lee.

"MAN Vintners started as a simple plan: to make a wine that we'd love to buy. We wanted quality wine that offered excellent value and great packaging. Not exactly an epiphany, perhaps, but enough to motivate us into action. Of course, first we had to come up with a name. To keep peace in the families, we took our wives' initials (we each have one wife) - 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. And mostly it's true." - Winery

"We" are José Conde and brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh who started making wine together in 2001. From the first 300 cases made in a tractor shed, the winery has grown to producing over 175,000 cases per year and exporting to 25 countries. MAN's biggest selling wines are Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, but the area is also well known for Shiraz and Pinotage.

The Agter-Paarl area is the ideal region for growing Chenin Blanc. It thrives in the Mediterranean climate, deep soils and bush-vine vineyards of this region. MAN use only the free-run juice (no pressing of the grapes) to preserve its clean and natural character, refreshing acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavours.
