This is another of those quiet legends - a pretty rare wine, but once people try it they always ask for it. Maybe because it is so distinctive - lush stone fruit and fresh acidity but with an oily-mineral character/texture (from where we've no idea) and perhaps a salty note thanks to one of New Zealand's strangest vineyards, on the tiny island of Ponui just off the coast of Waiheke. It has major X factor and is always interesting - compelling even - and the only solution we've found is to buy one and join the fan club.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Gris

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.
