Man O War Ironclad Bordeaux Blend 2013
Man O’ War Ironclad Bordeaux Blend 2013
Waiheke Island, New Zealand
A blend of 32% Cabernet Franc, 29% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, and 12% Petit Verdot. On the nose there is huge complexity of both blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme. The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture in the mid palate progressing to a streak of minerality towards the finish contributing freshness to the wine and complementing a huge quantity of fine grained tannins.
