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!


Mahi Pinot Gris 2016 Marlborough 92 Points Extremely attractive bouquet of ripe tree and stone fruits with a core of concentration, spice and fruit. On the palate – delicious and just dry with medium+ acidity and flavours of pear skin and peach, apple and preserved lemon, a hint of white pepper spice and dried herb, crushed stone mineral note and wild honeysuckle. Lovely wine with medium+ length. Drink now and through 2020. Mahi ‘Ward Farm’ Pinot Gris 2015 Marlborough 94 Points Fragrant, spicy, complex and packed with a core of mineral ripe fruit. Flavours of peach and pear, honeysuckle and spicy apple; fabulous texture with some lees-like sulphide moments, medium+ acidity, complex and long finish. Delicious example. Drink now and through 2020.
