Man O’ War
Located at the eastern end of Waiheke Island, in New Zealand’s Hauraki Gulf, Man O’ War boasts a pristine and beautiful spread of coastal hillsides with high cliffs and stunning beaches. This rugged and beautiful coastline was “Discovered” in 1769 by Captain James Cook, and today we take responsibility for maintaining its beauty and integrity for future generations.
Today 150 acres of vines are strategically placed around Man O’ War’s 4500 acres, enhancing its intrinsic beauty. Meticulous design ensures that the distinct soil profile and microclimate of each block is used to best advantage with different rootstocks, clones and planting densities selected to match the specific terroir on offer.

At Man O’ War an exceptional and passionate team of people come together to bring you unique world class wines that reflect the distinctive treasure of land from which they come. Our winemaking team possesses broad and extensive experience and we pride ourselves on fusing classic Old World techniques with innovative New World ideas.

Man O’ War wines are presented in two collections that represent our hallmark elegance, balance and texture. Our Flagship – Black Label Range of Gravestone Sauvignon Semillon, Valhalla Chardonnay, Dreadnought Syrah and Ironclad Bordeaux Blend convey layers of complexity, structure and ageing potential. Each we have lovingly named to reflect their history and exceptional sense of place. While our Man O’ War – White Label range expresses varietal character and fruit vibrancy in a classical style.

GRAVESTONE
Taking it’s name from the fluted basalt boulders that solemnly surround our volcanic hilltop vineyards, Gravestone is bequeathed upon the finest blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon we are blessed with each vintage.

VINEYARD & CELLAR NOTES
As always the fruit was hand harvested and in 2010 in excellent condition. We harvest the Sauvignon blanc based on the acidity and generally find very exotic fruit characters. Sémillon we get as ripe as possible looking for very ripe and golden bunches. The Sémillon was fermented in old oak as clear juice and cultured yeast and the Sauvignon in tank as cloudy juice and wild yeast.
