MAHI SINGLE VINEYARD SAUVIGNON – TOP 2 WINES IN WINE ADVOCATE TASTING

We are thrilled to announce our two single vineyard Sauvignon Blancs received the top scoring ratings in Lisa Perrotti-Brown’s tasting of New Zealand Sauvignons in October 2013.

Some excerpts from her article:

“I’m impressed. My tastings on New Zealand wines throughout 2013 was the most exciting year of reviewing this country so far; the wines just get more and more compelling”  Lisa Perrotti-Brown, New Zealand: Fine Tuning (31 October 2013)

Mahi has managed to score the highest points for both their single vineyard Sauvignon Blancs achieving a 92+ rating for each wine. Naturally we are thrilled with the news. Even more so as Lisa states in her article:

“ This was my most interesting set of Sauvignon tastings to date. A good many producers are really finding their feet with individual expression, revealing sub-regional differences. use of barrel ferments/ wild yeast and lees contact.”

2012 Mahi ‘Boundary Farm’ Sauvignon Blanc – 92+ points
The 2012 Boundary Block Sauvignon Blanc is scented of pineapples, passion fruit and grapefruit with nuances of baker’s yeast, honeysuckle and toast. Medium-bodied and endowed with a pleasant, satiny texture, it has a lively line of acid to cut through the concentrated tropical favors before it finishes with great length. Drink it now to 2017+.

2012 ‘Ballot Block’ Sauvignon Blanc – 92+ points
The 2012 Ballot Block Sauvignon Blanc flaunts an attractive nose of green mango, guava and fresh apples with underlying lime leaves, cedar and peach blossom hints. Medium-bodied with a lovely yeastiness and silky texture coming through in the mouth, it has a great backbone of refreshing acidity giving lift through the long finish. Drink it now to 2017+
