Someone at Man O’ War on Waiheke Island really has a fascination with ships. Maybe it’s because they’re on an island. Maybe they just love playing battleships. They’ve got a tradition of naming some of their labels after famous ships – Ironclad, Dreadnought, Warspite.

So what would they come up with a pretty, delicate, dry style Rosé? Man O’ War Pinque?! Hah, they’ve run out of ship ideas we thought!

No. Actually, Pinque is a small, flat-bottom ship that sailed the Mediterranean as a cargo ship. It’s also the French word for “pink”. Which actually ties in nicely given this is what’s known as a Provençal style Rosé – the style they slurp regularly on the hot coastlines of the Mediterranean. Quite a clever name for the label as it turns out.

A blend of some of their Waiheke grown Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc grapes. Summer fruit flavours in a refreshingly dry style. The Man O’ War crew said this about latest 2023 release: “A summer icon. The 2023 Pinque is a pure expression of Rose – designed for drinking all season long.”
