Man O' War Valhalla Chardonnay 2014
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you! If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Special Instructions' at the checkout.
We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please either 'ASK A QUESTION' or leave us a message in the 'Special Instructions' at checkout.

The Man O' War Valhalla Chardonnay takes its name from the shining, golden hall in Norse Mythology where the souls of fallen Viking warriors chosen by Odin feasted with the gods.
Hand harvested 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. The 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.
The Valhalla Chardonnay displays bold flavours and aromas with complex savoury notes introducing tropical fruits, stone fruit, and hazelnut with toasty/smoky barrel characters. The palate is all about elegance and discreet power with a rich texture framed by vibrant acidity, oak and bold fruit.
