A QUICK VINTAGE UPDATE

Just back from visiting each of our vineyards and as we are not picking today, because of the tail of ‘Cyclone Debbie’, it seems a good time to update you quickly on Vintage 2017 at Mahi. Already there are a couple of distinguishing characteristics about this vintage, with the first being that it was a pretty late start. Below are our start dates from the last 11 vintages and you can see that it has been one of our later kick-offs, with the Twin Valleys Pinot Noir andGewurztraminer being the first picked. Average temperatures are above ‘normal’ but sunshine hours, especially in March, have been a bit lower. This decrease in sunshine time has slowed down photosynthesis, which is my favourite, and possibly the most important process in the world, so ripeness has been delayed meaning a later pick. Mahi Vintage Start dates 2017 March 29th 2016 March 22nd 2015 March 20th 2014 March 13th 2013 March 26th 2012 April 7th 2011 March 21st 2010 March 30th 2009 March 27th 2008 March 25th 2007 March 22nd   At this stage…

10 Year Anniversary of the Mahi Winery

Ten years ago today we walked into a place of Marlborough history that was to become the home of Mahi. So many great memories, people, wines and nights have been shared here and it is still one of my favourite places to be. I still love walking through the winery doors to that familiar smell and feel, and could not have hoped for a better place to fulfil a long-held dream of having a winery; a place to express ourselves through our wines. Many thanks to all the folk that have been part of it along the way and look forward to sharing a meal and wines this evening with our current team, including Pat and Kate who have been here for most of the ride. Here is to the adventures and vintages to come!
