REBECCA GIBB MW REVIEWS A FEW MAHI WINES

MAHI MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC 2016
90 Points
Round and seamless, keeping in the citrus and elderflower spectrum rather than green and tropical. Fine, drawn out finish with texture, likely from a low pH.

MAHI BOUNDARY FARM SAUVIGNON BLANC 2015
92 Points
From clay soils on a slope at the eastern end of the Wairau close to Blenheim. Whole cluster pressed, indigenous fermentation, no additions, barrel fermented with high solids. The result is a flinty and nutty nose with seamless mouthfilling texture, which caresses the mid-palate and brings grip and a hint of chew on the grassy, slightly blackcurranty finish.

MAHI MARLBOROUGH CHARDONNAY 2015
91 Points
Ripe peach fruit with brioche and lanolin flavours abound in this mid-weight Chardonnay. Offering silken texture, and a high level of fruit concentration, it finished with a flourish of fine acidity.

MAHI TWIN VALLEYS CHARDONNAY 2015
93 Points
Full bodied, round and weighty with a high level of fruit concentration reminiscent of cream, lanolin and cashew. This whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented wine sports a silken texture and a firm, lemony finish

MAHI BALLOT BLOCK SAUVIGNON BLANC 2008
95 Points
Considering this is nearly 10 years old, it is still pale as the day as it was made. Minerally and taut with a high level of fruit concentration. It is textural and dense without any overt tropical or green flavours. Firm, fine acidity. Starting to take on some creamy, wet wool characters, quince that hint at its age.

MAHI MARLBOROUGH PINOT NOIR 2016
89 Points
A fragant and piquant nose full of florals, herbs and redcurrant, Fine, sinewy expression with 30% whole bunch providing a drawn out spicy finish. Vibrant, fresh and appetising.

MAHI BYRNE PINOT NOIR 2013
90 Points
Broody, spicy and a touch of soapiness on the nose. Round and ripe offering a gentle expression that’s expansive in the mouth. Low level of ripe fine tannins. Medium length.
