Man O’ War Station is located at the eastern end of Waiheke Island, it boasts pristine and beautiful coastal
hillsides with high cliffs and stunning beaches. This rugged and beautiful coastline was “Discovered” in 1769
by Captain James Cook. Today, 150 acres of vines are strategically placed around Man O’ War’s 4500 acres.
By Combining Waiheke islands rugged canvas with new world viticulture, Our wines are hand crafted from vine
to bottle creating the true essence that is Man O’ War Vineyards.
The fruit for our 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.
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 our 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.
