Man O’ War Bellerophon Syrah 2014

$61.00 $54.90

After our experience with the 2012 Bellerophon we were able to craft a wine from 2014 that will not only live up to the expectations created by the 2012 Bellerophon but will substantially exceed those expectations. The 2014 Bellerophon is classically structured with an intensely fragrant nose of violets, raspberries and white pepper. Careful management of the stem and Viognier components has resulted in a palate that is soft and elegant exhibiting flavours of ripe red berries. All of which is encased by the distinctive stem tannins giving a lifted freshness and lenght to the finish. The wine is incredibly approachable in its youth but will age gracefully developing more savoury earthy and smoked meat characters with time.

The palate is bold with good concentration and volumes of supple tannins.

Man O’ War Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2016

$25.00 $22.50

The 2016 Sauvignon blanc is a stylish vintage with typical in its herbaceous aromas, tight acidity and ample texture. Typical of Waiheke Sauvignon blanc, our 2016 Estate Savvy is perfect with a year or two of age allowing the wine to mellow and showcase the wines structure and longevity. The wine is conveying the volcanic influence in the soil through its minerality and elevated acidity which is well balanced with texture from the barrel influence and ripe fruit tannins extracted from the skins in the cloudy ferments. This wine is bottled and protected under screw cap as we believe it is the best closure for quality wine.

Man O’ War Ironclad Merlot Cabernet 2012

$49.00 $44.10

Predominantly Cabernet franc and Merlot, the nose has aromas of sweet ripe fruit with lifted aromas of crushed red berries and darker cassis with hints of floral perfume from the Malbec and Petit Verdot with a flourish of tobacco and cedar from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is vibrant, exuding ripe fruit and a rich texture finishing with supple fine grained tannins. The 2012 Ironclad is a fine example of what Waiheke can achieve in a cooler vintage. It has great fruit accessibility with a powerful structure coated in luxuriant fruit,supple yet powerful. It is an engaging wine in its youth that will reward patient cellaring revealing a refined structure and greater complexity with age. This is our greatest Ironclad yet.

Matahiwi Holly Sauvignon Blanc 2016

$32.00 $28.80

The Holly wines are the flagship range for Matahiwi and are named after the owner’s daughter. We are trying to achieve balance with this wine between maintaining the pure Sauvignon fruit vibrancy and building in complex yeast and barrel derived flavours. Lime skin and elderflower aromas along with a mineral, crushed stone note, marry with nutty yeasty characters and a savoury edge. While this wine is ready to drink now, it can be cellared for up to four years. We enjoy this wine with freshly smoked white-fleshed fish served on crostini or try with a leek and pecorino tart.
