Man O' War Exiled Pinot Gris 2019 13.5% 750ml

Man O' War Exiled Pinot Gris 2019 13.5% 750ml

The pinot gris in 2018 enjoyed a relatively hot summer and although there were intense periods of rainfall thanks to ex Tropical Cyclone Fehi and Gita the temperatures remained hot into the harvest months. For Pinot gris that mean ripe flavours but also pockets of Noble Botrytis that intensifies and enhances the aromatic qualities of Pinot gris, our latest pick was in the Gorse Laneway block at 39.5 brix.

Man O’ War is located at the eastern end of Waiheke Island, New Zealand, upon which is a stunning array of coastal hillsides with high cliffs and pristine beaches forming a ruggedly beautiful coastline. Today, Man O’ War consists of 150 acres of vines planted in 76 individual hillside blocks, each with a distinct soil profile and microclimate. Every single block bears the footprints, and sometimes the names, of those who transformed Man O’ War’s rugged hillsides into a spectacular patchwork of vines. Each block has been meticulously designed with different rootstocks, clones and planting densities to best match the specific terroir on offer.
