The Man O’ War Bordeaux blend exhibits ripe aromatic notes of dark berry fruits, cocoa and liquorice with complementary floral, spice and coffee characters. The palate is rich and supple with exuberant sweet fruit balanced with fresh natural acidity and fine grained tannins. The fermentation of whole berries in the ferment has promoted the fruitfulness of the vintage and the gentle extraction has resulted in a fine tannin structure. Made of the 5 traditional varieties of Bordeaux; primarily Merlot, Cabernet franc and Malbec with a small percentages of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. - Winery Note

Details

The Man O’ War story begins with a special piece of land which has a rich history. Located at the eastern end of Waiheke Island, Man O’ War is a stunning array of coastal hillsides with high cliffs and pristine beaches forming a ruggedly beautiful coastline.

It was along this coastline that Captain James Cook came to anchor during his first voyage around the islands of New Zealand in 1769. Upon sighting the ancient stands of magnificent Kauri trees ashore, Cook noted in his journals that they would make ideal masts for the Man O' War battleships of the Royal Navy. Thus the name Man O’ War was bestowed upon this unique land.

With a desire to protect this treasured land’s natural beauty and sense of history for future generations, our family purchased the four contiguous farms that now form the 4,500 acres of Man O’ War in the early 1980s. And so began our adventure of exploring this land, along the way naming our 'discoveries' in honour of family history, naval legacy, and of this special place itself.
