    Valhalla was heaven for the Vikings –  a shining, golden hall for warriors who died gloriously in battle, a place they could feast with the gods. And probably slug back a goblet or two of wine.

    If full flavoured, powerful golden Chardonnay’s your idea of heaven, you’re in the right place. Only the very best barrels of Chardonnay get used for Man O’War’s flagship black label Valhalla label. After all, it’s got to be fit for a Viking!

    Produced from a selection of their best vineyards on the eastern end of Waiheke Island, this is a wine that has gained a huge following over the years. The 2016 is here and in the words of the winemaker “Valhalla 2016 is one of the best vintages of Chardonnay we have produced“.

    This is a wine that is already known for selling out in super quick time, so when the winemaker’s making calls like that you know it’s probably time to get a move on. Food match your Valhalla with chicken or fish dishes in buttery, creamy sauces.
