Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Crisp citrus
  • Pear
  • Cinnamon

Aromas of citrus and pear with hints of cinnamon are balanced with a very linear low pH structure that is all about fresh crispness balanced by natural residual sugar.

The 2019 Estate Pinot Gris comes from one of the best vintages in memory coming off a settled Spring with good fruit set and warm to hot Summer and a very settled dry Autumn. 2019 saw impeccable fruit with little to no botrytis resulting in a wine of great purity and a classical structure.

Man O’ War Estate Pinot Gris is grown on a number of vineyards on both Ponui Island and Waiheke Island, all elevated hillside sides which are exposed to the cooling breezes coming off the Pacific ocean. The Pinot Gris is all hand harvested and is must pumped to the press for a long slow press cycle into tank and fined for clarity. The juice is then racked clear and fermented cool with selected Riesling yeasts until the right balance of sugar, acid and tannin is tasted and at that point the fermentation is stopped by chilling to below zero. The wine is then held in the cellar at cold temperature to retain as much natural carbon dioxide left over from the fermentation as possible to provide a light spritz in the wine.

Very smooth

Sarah - 31/08/2020

Pinot Gris has always had a love/hate relationship with me. Some times they are so thin in character and really not appealing. This one, one the other hand, just slapped me in the face like a long lost friend that I hadn't seen for a while and made itself right at home on my palate. Deep and full in flavour and yet enough subtlety to keep me wanting just a bit more. Dangerous drop in that sense. Great value. Jump in - Highly recommended.

a bit sweet for the better half

Gus - 03/09/2020

Barry - 02/09/2020

The description suggests it is on the dry side. This wine is lovely but on the sweeter side for my palate

Malcolm - 31/08/2020

K
A little sweeter than I normally like but yummy with spicy Thai food as I found out!

Karen - 31/08/2020

Full bodied and tasted more like a riesling. Excellent complement to spicy meals but would not recommend as a Pre dinner wine.
