Description

  • Dry style
  • Tropical notes
  • Grassy green notes
  • Crisp & clean

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is incredibly aromatic with classical grassy green characters with tropical overtones and a clean dry persistent palate. Crisp and clean this is Man O' War's most successful vintage of Sauvignon blanc and is perfectly suited to the local Te Matuku Oysters which are farmed close to Man O’ War, or similarly the abundant seafood that thrive in the surrounding coastal waters.

The 2019 Estate Sauvignon Blanc comes from low yielding vineyards located on the hilltops surrounded by massive basalt boulders, remnants of a long forgotten volcanic eruption... The sites are cool being tempered by elevation and cooling sea breezes and also unsurprisingly have a unique volcanic make up to their soils.

The 2019 vintage was one of the best seasons in the history of grape growing on Waiheke Island, warm settled weather made for a classic NZ summer and continued through to the harvest months.

The fruit for this Estate Sauvignon Blanc is hand harvested and gently pressed for settling into stainless steel tanks. After racking and a yeast addition, a long slow cool fermentation in tank is carried out before blending post vintage and bottled nice and early.

A strong citrus (mainly lemon) bite makes this most unlike the traditional passionfruit Sauvignon Blanc we produce in NZ. I really liked it on the whole. May be a tad bit too strong to give it 5 stars but a great drop none the less. Definitely sets itself apart from some of the cheaper competitors and makes it great value for money.

I love a more grassy Sauvignon Blanc but pleasant enough

Disappointing - needs some aging as tastes very green.
