Two recent reviews of our 2019 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Candice Chow of Raymond Chan Wine Reviews and Cameron Douglas MS review our 2019 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
| Candice Chow: “Mouth-watering minerals and salinity underlined lacy acidity, linger with spices to a sustained, moreish finish.”
| Cameron Douglas: “Complex yet calm, fruity and precise, elegant and detailed.”

Upcoming events around NZ

Bob Campbell MW gives the 2019 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 95 points

Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Marlborough, NZD $22.90 Made from only free-run juice, partial wild yeast fermentation in barrel, a portion of semillon and nine months on lees has added complexity and a richer texture to this concentrated Sauvignon Blanc. A serious Sauvignon with red capsicum, gooseberry, passionfruit and a suggestion of struck-flint. 95 points – read Bob’s tasting at The Real Review

Cameron Douglas MW reviews our 2017 Alchemy Chardonnay

Mahi Alchemy Chardonnay 2017, Marlblrough, NZD $39.90 If you want to know anything about Marlborough’s wine history and landscape, ask Mahi’s winemaker Brian Bicknell. You’ll be captivated by his wine, too. This single-vineyard expression of Chardonnay showcases aromas and flavours of white fleshed orchard fruits and grapefruit peel and leesy wild ferment complexity, a silky texture and near full-body power.

Mark Henderson reviews our 2017 Boundary Farm Sauvignon

2017 Mahi Single Vineyard Boundary Farm Sauvignon BlancRating: Excellent A little smoke and struck match leads, the wine flitting between grassy and ripe passionfruit/tropical fruit. A rush of sweet fruit floods the mouth, tropical fruit toying with tangy grapefruit as richness and creaminess build. Lovely flow as it runs to a long, lemony-citrus accented close. Different but with real appeal.

Mark Henderson reviews our 2019 Pinot Gris

2019 Mahi Marlborough Pinot GrisRating: Very good to excellent Youthfully expressive nose offering fruit sherbet, gummy bears, apricot and apple. Drier than the nose suggests, the sweetness of stonefruits and pear drop lollies countered by a lemon squash element that gives tangy freshness. Nice texture in the mouth, a bittersweet hint on the close adding interest. Very nice summer drinking.

Cameron Douglas MS gives the 2017 Boundary Farm 94 Points!

Mahi SV Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Marlborough This barrel aged wine shows off a complexity and charm unique to the Boundary Farm and Mahi winemaking control. Aromas and flavours of spices and lees, organic fresh pears and apples, lemons and white peaches. The high acidity is easily contrasted by the core of fruit with natural & complex textures adding length and individuality. A lovely wine with great length, style and charm. Drink now and through 2023. 94 Points
