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.

Tasting Note (from the winery)
2020 Valhalla exhibits toasty complexity over a range of citrus notes from lime characters to mandarin. The palate is rich and textural with a fresh succulent finish that belies its concentration. 2020 was a drought year which often presents challenges in creating wines that are fresh and zesty. The 2020 Valhalla is classical in its style being linear, structured and age worthy typical of some of the great wines of the world.

This is a Dry, Full bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Low tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Long finish.
