The Oddbins Take

If you're a world-class winery, you will be in possession of a few things, including a gifted winemaker and a well-placed vineyard. Man O' War have both of these. Their winemaker, Duncan McTavish is basically a grape-whisperer and the vineyard where the Syrah vines grow might as well have an X marking the spot on the map. It has a well-angled slope, which means the vine can catch the sun for the longest amount of time, and a cooling sea breeze, which means the grapes don't get hot under the collar. All of which leads to a breath-taking wine, with smoky peat notes draped over the overt blueberry and pepper aromas. Concentrated yet well-balanced, with vibrant acidity and a streak of almost salty minerality, it would be perfect with wood-fired pigeon.
