Jack Mann reigns eternal as the greatest winemaker in the history of the Australian west. Jack Mann's son Tony grew up amongst the vineyards of Houghton but took a keener interest in things Cricket. He exelled at both pursuits but is best remembered as the legendary leg spinner Tony Rocket Mann. During his off seasons away from the pitch, Tony would plant parcels of vine alongside his illustruious father Jack and his own young son Robert. The fully grown Robert now makes his own wine, from fruit of the very vines sown by Jack and Tony Mann. Robert learned from his grandfather that great winemaking required a spiritual oneness with nature. The birds and the bees play a pivotal role in achieving a harvest of the most personable grapes.

Xanadu Cane Cut Viognier 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Viognier Margaret River Western Australia
Boodjidup Vineyard Viognier, the old growers trick of slicing a cane of bunches off the vine and setting the whole branch aside to dry and shrivel as the berries become engorged with flavour. The deliciously desiccated grapes are crushed and cold soaked to rehydrate the raisined fruit, pressed and sent for a month of vinification at a cool 15°C. Ferments are arrested to retain all the moreish sweetness and extraordinary complexity of cane cut Viognier. Apricot nectars, mango and lychee, her mouth watering lemon honey drop juicyness persists through to a wickedly flavourful finish.
