On a 1769 voyage Captain Cook saw potential in what he saw at the eastern end of Waiheke Island. Shiver me timbers, it was timber! He saw the massive kauri trees as ideal masts for the fleet of wooden battleships – thus he named it Man O’ War bay.

If only he’d realised what potential this part of New Zealand had for growing grapes. And boy, does it grow them well!

This is their 2023 release Sauvignon Blanc and if you’re feeling like branching out from the typical Marlborough style, here’s a great option. It’s loaded with clean, fresh tropical fruit flavours and a dry finish. “A tasty reward for finishing your chores” say the Man O’ War crew.

Here’s a tip – if you’re on the island make the trek over to the eastern side and visit the Man O’ War crew. Grab yourself a glass and enjoy the million dollar view from the lawn or beach – it doesn’t get much better! You can pair this wine with some local Te Matuku Oysters that are farmed nearby.
