Cameron Douglas Reviews our 2018 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Mahi continues to produce excellent wines at very affordable prices – this SB from the 2018 vintage is no exception. Mahi Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Marlborough Vibrant, intense, spicy, fruity and complex attack with aromas of lemon and sweet hay, fresh bell-pepper, a creamy barrel ferment layer, golden kiwi and gooseberry. All these ideas turn into flavours on the palate emphasised by acidity, barrel spice, warming alcohol and a core of varietal lusciousness. Lengthy finish, great balance and immediate appeal. Drink now and through 2023. 94 Points
