Man O' War Bellerophon Syrah Viognier 2014


The Man O' War Bellerophon Syrah Viognier is christened in honour of the heroic demi-god astride an immortal winged horse. First released in 2012 this vintage of Bellerophon is the second offering from Man O' War. The Syrah was co-fermented in the classic mould of Côte-Rôtie with the white Viognier grape.

The Bellerophon is classically structured with an intensely fragrant nose of violets, raspberries and white pepper. Careful management of the components has resulted in a palate that is soft and elegant exhibiting flavours of ripe red berries. The wine is incredibly approachable in its youth but will age gracefully developing more savoury earthy and smoked meat characters with time.
