Description

Ironclad is named in honour of the 19th Century warships characterised by the iron armour bolted onto their wooden hulls, much as iron courses through the veins of the warm clay hillside vineyards.
Man O’ War has 45 different vineyard sites dedicated to Bordeaux varietals. Each vineyard is meticulously sorted in the vineyard by hand harvesting and double sorted in the winery by both bunch and berry.
Each vineyard is kept separate from vineyard to barrel with the blend carefully selected from the 45 diff erent parcels in the following year. The ferments are carefully managed with twice daily plunging by hand and fermentation carried out by native yeast.
On the nose the cassis from the Cabernet Sauvignon is quite overt but there is huge complexity underneath of both blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme. The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture in the mid palate progressing to a streak of minerality towards the fi nish contributing freshness to the wine and complementing a huge quantity of fi ne grained tannins Ironclad will reward decanting in its youth and will also reward long patient cellaring with a wine of immense complexity, power and longevity.
