Description

Man O' War is all about vineyard selection with almost 100 different vineyard sites to choose from. Not only vineyard selection but Duncan McTavish loves experimenting with different winemaking techniques to bring out the best of each parcel. Often Syrah's from Waiheke demonstrate very ripe, if not over-ripe characteristics, but not this Syrah. The bouquet suggests the use of a high percentage of whole bunches in the ferment (the new fad with Syrah) and it works. You did it Duncan.

Smells

gorgeous aromas of red and dark fruits, cherries, plums and cedar with intense white pepper and herbal layers.

Tastes

The point of whole bunches (the whole bunch goes into the vat, stems and all) is to add complexity and to tame the ripeness of the fruit, giving an interesting herbal dimension and this wine has all of that. There is a dense bright core of fruit, salivating mouth coating tannins which gently kiss the insides of the cheeks and a lively acidity giving length and drive. Drink now through to 2026 and enjoy with BBQ pork ribs or stews.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
