Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018


New product

Musky aromas and flavours of lemon-lime, pepper and herbs, plus a subtle suggestion of ripe peach. Plush and broad but with harmonious spicy, grapefruit notes giving the wine lift. Fresh but fully ripe and nicely tactile, even plush, and long on the aftertaste.

More info

This wine is blended from seven vineyards aged between eight and twenty-four years. The yields are kept fairly low, with green harvesting if necessary. The grapes were harvested by hand between the 21st of March and the 6th of April.

Only free-run juice was used, of which eleven percent was fermented in older French barriques at up to 24ºC, and the rest in stainless steel at 15ºC. Eighteen percent used indigenous yeast.

“Ripe nectarine and pink grapefruit notes lead the way in this medium to full-bodied wine. It’s plump, mouthfilling and silky in texture, with decent length.” – 90 Points, The Wine Advocate, Mar 2019

Establishing Mahi, meaning ‘our work, our craft’, was a long-held dream for Brian and Nicola Bicknell. A seasoned international winemaker, Brian made Mahi’s first vintage in 2001, and in 2006 they finally purchased a winery in the very heart of Marlborough. It is the texture of these wines that particularly impresses; while far from heavy, they have a sense of substance that places them among the very best in Marlborough.
