What do you need to know?
Man O' War Say: Aromas of citrus and pear with hints of cinnamon are balanced with a very linear low pH structure that is all about fresh crispness balanced by natural residual sugar. 2020 saw impeccable fruit with little to no botrytis resulting in a Wine of great purity and a classical structure. Man O' War Estate Pinot Gris is grown on a number of vineyards on both Ponui Island and Waiheke Island, all elevated hillside sides which are exposed to the cooling breezes coming off the Pacific ocean.

Wine match by Sommelier Andrea Martinisi of The Grove and Baduzzi Restaurants
A classic Baduzzi dish, which has been on our menu for years! I love to pair this with a wine with some residual sugar because the sweetness brought by the figs it’s a key component in the dish. That’s why I think this Pinot Gris from Man o’War makes a great companion to the dish, as it has a floral and stone fruits note which goes beautifully with the tangy goat’s curd. The wine has a good acidity to refresh the palate but overall is a really rich and decadent experience.Download our Liquor Licence
