Concentrated palate adding cherry and plum to the mix with fine and well-integrated tannins.

MARK HENDERSON’S THOUGHTS ON OUR 2016 SAUVIGNON

Nice words from Mark Henderson in the Otago Daily Times on our 2016 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Over the last few years we have been leaving our Sauvignon on yeast lees longer and longer and like the effect on the palate and texture, with the 2016 drinking so well right now. 2016 Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Rating:  Very good to excellent Subtle nose of wildflowers, lemon pepper and a lime-tinged note. The palate adds gooseberry and smoke with a pepper and spice character: initially supple and vinous before the green herb zestiness and crisp acid zing floods in to take charge. This grows into something rather lovely with persistence, grip and zing.
