MANWVLKCHA17

Man O' War Valkyrie Chardonnay 2017

Waiheke Island, New Zealand.
ShellfishChicken
  • Decision time with Valkyrie
  • As the Valkyrie goddesses once decided who would live or die, you must decide whether you can live without the big buttery taste in your Chardy's....Valkyrie is a veeery convincing goddess.
  • Perfect with seared scallops, poached crays, roast chicken or the classic fish n' chips!
Duncan McTavish and the team at Man O' War often rave about their glorious vineyard soils covering the Waiheke Island estate like the 'Stony Batter clay loam'. Which is claimed to be a world exclusive to Man O' War. Four vineyards Little Beast, Lone Kauri, Nikau, Puriri, Root Rake have the honour of this unique volcanic soil and together have created the very distinctive Valkyrie Chardonnay. Duncan's desire was to create a Chardonnay which represents the soil and sites, so it was pretty basic winemaking with a wild barrel ferment and not much more. Lovers of those big buttery Chardy's turn away now....as there was no lees stirring or malolactic ferments creating that character. But it does have this delicious stonefruit flavour just as you would find crunchy into a juicy peach or a freshly plucked nectarine. As this Chardy had a very important job to represent the island vineyards in their purest form. when it came to naming this golden drop the Man O' War team looked to one of the most important jobs in Norse mythology - the gorgeous Valkyrie's who's job it was to decide at battletime who would live or die!

Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
  • Chardy for ‘All occasions’
  • Left Field's Lizard Fish Chardonnay is 100% Hawke's Bay as well as being 100% barrel and malolactic fermented, so there is plenty of oomph in this young Chardy.
  • Ant Mackenzie and Richard Painter are the blending artists behind this wine creating flavours of citrus and vanilla with a touch of soft oak. Amazingly priced this Chardy would be a stunner with fish n' chips on the beach seasoned with a slice of lemon.

Craggy Range Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Craggy Range Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
  • Mouthwatering Chardonnay in purest unadulterated form!
  • Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay is an ever so lightly oaked Chardonnay styled akin the great golden drops of Chablis, and like Chablis has a massive influence from the seaside.
  • Look for pure Chardonnay grape flavours of grapefruit, peaches with hints of almond and the ever present mouthwatering salty/briney characters from the coast, where as you guessed it - the perfect food match also hails from.
  • Case of 6 ($24.90/bottle)
