Man O' War Dreadnought Waiheke Island Syrah (2017)

Estate-grown at the eastern end of the island, the 2017 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested from the 'steepest and most breathtaking hillside Syrah vineyards', and matured in French oak puncheons (32 per cent new). Deeply coloured, with a fragrant, complex, slightly earthy bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with concentrated blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity, supple tannins, and a very harmonious finish. Delicious now, it's also well worth cellaring.
