“Fear god and dread nought” – an intimidating line to pull out next time you’re playing battleships. This was actually the motto of the HMS Dreadnought, launched in 1906, which at the time was the world’s most powerful battleship ever built!
From the steep hillside vineyards of Man O’ War on the eastern end of Waiheke Island, this impresses every year and fast becoming one of Aotearoa’s most iconic Syrah labels. The 2015 release is here and in the words of the MOW crew she’s a “classical Northern Rhone Syrah. Stylish and finely balanced this wine is beautiful now and will benefit from ‘splashy’ decanting prior to drinking upon release.”
Splashy decanting?! Far out, you ought to be dreading splashing a drop of this stuff. As always this is first class and a wine we’d highly recommend pairing with wild game dishes or a cut of fine Kiwi lamb.
