RAYMOND CHAN REVIEWS FIRST OF OUR 2018’s

Mahi Marlborough Rosé 2018 5 stars Bright, very pale candyfloss pink with slight purple tints, near colourless on the rim.  The nose is gently fragrant with aromas of strawberries and cream, perfumed red florals and a subtle amalgam of herbs, confectionary and suggestions of fresh fermentation esters.  The aromatics are beautiful in expression.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright, juicy and fragrant fruit flavours of strawberries and cream, with cherries and fragrant florals, along with delicate notes of confectionary forming a fine, elegant core.  The wine flows along a fine-textured line with thirst-quenching acidity providing energy.  The wine carries to a long, lingering, aromatic, mouthwatering finish.  This is a beautifully fragrant dry rosé with strawberries and cream, cherries, florals and subtle confectionary notes on a thirst-quenching palate.  Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto over the next 2 years.  100% Pinot Noir from the ‘Winery’ site and the cooler end of the Brancott Valley, given 2 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in tank to 13.7% alc. and 1.8 g/L RS.  18.5-/20  Aug 2018 Mahi Marlborough Pinot Gris…
