This special release is a top Syrah from Waiheke Island's Man O'War. While Totto is a family name, the name 'Kulta' is the Finnish word for gold and represents the extreme quality of the select fruit sources for this wine, which is only released in the very best vintages. The very top of the pile for Man O War and Wiaheke Syrah, the Totto is one to try.

Its Origins

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 microclimate. 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. Helmed by winemaker Duncan McTavish and vineyard manager Matt Allen, the wines represent a legacy of preservation and great respect for the land and its history.

What The Critics Say

92+/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwnski

"Produced in minute quantities (150 cases) from the property's steepest vineyard blocks, the 2013 Kulta Totto Syrah spent a year in oak, then a year in older oak, and has been bottle-aging at the winery. Mocha, cedar and black olive notes accent dark, plummy fruit in this full-bodied wine that boasts a creamy, supple mid-palate and a long but still-chewy finish. Give it another couple of years, and drink it over the following decade." Drink 2020 - 2030
