Man O'War Island Blend New Zealand 2019

Cabernet Franc  |  New Zealand

Ground shipping included on orders of 6 bottles or more!

New Zealand continues to surprise and impress – this time with a delectable 94 POINT cabernet franc blend from the winery that Robert Parker’s team called out as one of New Zealand’s “greatest wineries in the making”!

With an utterly spectacular, 4,500-acre farm, and over 150 acres of vineyards – this family-run property on the remote Waiheke Island off the coast of New Zealand is making waves in New Zealand. Now entering their third decade – the Kulta clan is making wines that redefine the possibilities for New Zealand wine country. Savory, SPICY, and lusciously textured. Is this Napa? Or some culty Right Bank garagiste wine? Ripe blackberries, molten chocolate cake, black peppercorn, bay leaf, clove, cinnamon, and kirsch...and this beauty is just getting ROLLING!

This is oh-so-pleasing, crack-the-cap, and drink-me-up style. New Zealand is more typically known for its bright, grassy sauv blanc and delicate, smoky pinots...not the hedonism-embracing, inky, powerful, and concentrated Bordeaux-style red we have today!! Winemaker extraordinaire, Duncan McTavish had never set foot on Waiheke Island before coming on board. One sip of this, and you’ll understand why he never left. If you think you know New Zealand, time to think again. Mostly cabernet franc, then 25% malbec, 19% merlot, and 8% petit verdot – this wine is full-throttle all the way – just rich, layered, juicy, and inky goodness. Nearly 50% off the retail and the ONLY place you’ll find this in the USA…get yours while it lasts!
