Man O War Death Valley Malbec 2014
Man O' War Death Valley Malbec 2014
Waiheke Island, New Zealand
“The nose is full and evenly packed with aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit, along with a soft and harmonious amalgam of earth, spices and cedar. Full-bodied, the palate has rich and sweetly ripe flavours of blackberries, boysenberries and plums, unfolding liquorice and spice notes. The fruit is vibrant and supported by grainy tannin structure and grip, with fresh, lacy acidity adding to the vitality. The mouthfeel is vigorous and robust with good energy and line carrying the wine to a full, solid and lingering finish of dark plums, liquorice and spices. This is a rich, robust and vigorous Malbec with ripe blackberry, boysenberry and plum flavours shoeing power and linearity. Match with barbecued and roasted red meat dishes.” – Raymond Chan Review

MAN O’ WAR VINEYARD – Waiheke Island
Since their first planting in 1993, Man O’War on Waiheke Island have taken great pride in matching specific grape varietals with the individual terroirs found across their 76 different hillside blocks. Fusing Old World techniques with New World ideas, each small parcel is carefully tended, harvested by hand and vinified separately to be blended into the unique expressions of Man O’War wines.
