Man O War Ironclad Bordeaux Blend 2012
Man O’ War Ironclad Bordeaux Blend 2012
Waiheke Island, New Zealand
The traditional 5 varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot make up the 2012 Ironclad. Aromas of sweet ripe fruit with lifted aromas of crushed red berries and darker cassis with hints of floral perfume from the Malbec and Petit Verdot with a flourish of tobacco and cedar from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is vibrant, exuding ripe fruit and a rich texture finishing with supple fine grained tannins. The 2011 Ironclad shows great fruit accessibility with a powerful structure coated in luxuriant fruit, supple yet powerful.
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.
