Grape VarietyMerlot, Cabernet Franc
StyleFull & Opulent
With the belief that the greatest wines of the world are made in the vineyard, each small parcel of vines are carefully tended and harvested by hand, then vinified separately, fusing classic Old World techniques with innovative New World ideas.
The grapes were harvested from a range of vineyard sites across the Man O’War property. Each site was selectively harvested to reflect varietal expression in respect to the overall blend. Crushed to open top fermenters and pumped over for colour and flavour extraction. Pressed to a mix of French and American oak barrels this wine remained in barrel for 10 months prior to blending and bottling.
Lifted floral aromas combine with dark berry fruit with a hint of asphalt and tar to give a fragrant and savoury perfume to the wine. The palate is warm and generous with sweet succulent fruit, ripe graphite like tannins and vibrant acidity. Classically styled with the exuberance of the new world this blended red combines all the softness and fragrance of Merlot and Malbec with the savour and cassis of Cabernet franc and the structure and power of Cabernet sauvignon.
