Food Pairings for Man O' War Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Waiheke Island
CELLAR NOTE Hand harvested grapes were carefully selected for optimal ripeness in the vineyard. Whole bunch pressing ensured delicate juice extraction before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Aromatic yeast strains were selected and fermentation occurred slowly over two weeks at cool temperatures. A small portion was fermented in old French barrels to give added complexity to the final blend. TASTING NOTE This Sauvignon blanc grown on the coastal vineyards of Eastern Waiheke Island shows intense lime and passionfruit aromas typical of cool climate Sauvignon blanc. The palate shows a rich concentration of flavours with a well balanced vibrant acidity and fresh finish. This wine can be enjoyed with fresh fish and summer salads or as an apéritif.
