  • Tasting Note: Chardonnay from northern New Zealand, heady with tropical fruit and a scattering of hazelnut, plus a memorable toasty, smoky perfume and a parting trace of vibrant, grapefruit bitterness.
  • Food Matching: Partners well with Poultry, fleshy seafood and pork.
  • Vineyard: Sourced from 4 vineyards; Sidewinder, Rootrake, North Basin, South 3. Vines are trained in two cane VSP. These unirrigated vineyards are naturally low yielding resulting in 10 - 18 bunches per vine yielding very concentrated fruit.
  • Vinification: The exceptional 2014 vintage delivered fruit of outstanding quality and the fruit for our Valhalla Chardonnay was no exception. Our Chardonnay fruit is sourced from two distinctly different terroirs; vineyards located on the mid slope of our steep hillsides which are predominantly rich clay based soils and vineyards from our cooler elevated sites with light volcanic deposits in the soil.Hand harvested fruit is either gently foot stomped before pressing or whole bunch pressed directly to barrel for an un-inoculated ‘wild’ fermentation in 500 litre acacia (5%) or french oak puncheons. The wines are then left to evolve over the winter without disturbance of the lees before blending in the New Year into tank with fine lees and held for a further 6 months before bottling.
  • Awards and Press News: Jane Macquitty Fans of full-throttle New Zealand Chardonnay should scoop up Man o' War's 2014 Valhalla Chardonnay. It's bold, butterscotch and black toast redolent 14.5% fruit... The Saturday Times
