First planted in 1993, at the eastern end of Waiheke Island, Man O’ War consists of 150 acres of vines planted in 76 individual hillside blocks, each with a distinct soil profile and micro climate.
Every single block bears the footprints, and sometimes the names, of those who transformed Man O’ War’s rugged hillsides into a spectacular patchwork of vines.
This is an icon of Waiheke Syrah from the local experts.
As always with Man O' War, it is 'velvet glove' power, with concentrated and expressive flavours that flow with elegance and layering, breadth and finesse.
Game and earthy spice compliment ripe red and black fruits in this rich yet refined example of age-worthy, food-oriented Kiwi Syrah.
