94 POINTS
Mahi ‘Marlborough’ Pinot Noir 2012
A convincing style that is built on quality pinot noir fruit well handled in the winery. Dark cherry and spice on the nose, with violets and foresty underbrush. The palate has deliciously supple, ripe tannin texture, impressive length and shape, and fans out beautifully with pure dark-cherry flavor throughout. Drink now.

93 POINTS
Mahi ‘Marlborough’ Pinot Gris 2012
The Mahi style is a complex one, with the winemaking adding savory, biscuity complexity to some handy ripe, flavorsome fruit. There’s plenty of pear and pastry flavor, nicely weighted, fresh and quite commanding. Drink now.

93 POINTS
Mahi ‘Marlborough’ Sauvignon Blanc 2012
There is a delightful, creamy edge to the rich tropical and citrus fruits apparent on the nose. Superb clarity on the palate with pure citrus and passion fruit flavors providing the high notes. Lovely shimmering acidity makes for a great wine. Drink now.

92 POINTS
Mahi ‘Boundary Farm’ Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Lime, grapefruit and tropical-fruit characters on the nose and palate with a creamy mouthfeel with a dab of funk. Great driving acidity. Drink now.

93 POINTS
Mahi ‘Twin Valleys’ Gewürztraminer 2011
Pure aromas of citrus and stone fruits with subtle floral high notes: jasmine, frangipani, rose petal, lychee and bath salts. Great balance and harmony on display throughout this wine. Pure fruit, great clarity and a wicked stony, savory finish that is bone-dry and perfectly poised. Drink now.
