Description

Mahi, meaning ‘our work, our craft’, began in 2001, fulfilling a dream of the winemakers. After 15 vintages it was time to do their own thing. With a strong focus on single-vineyard wines, and now backed up by a series of premium regional wines from Marlborough, the idea behind Mahi is to respect and promote the individuality of the various vineyards.
The Mahi symbol represents the strength, life and growth of the native New Zealand frond (fern), with the understanding that wine should never be rushed to bottle, respecting its ability to evolve naturally over time.

"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" Cameron Douglas, Master of Wine

"Benchmark stuff, this aromatic, weighty wine has penetrating, vibrant, tropical fruit flavours to the fore, a hint of barrel-ferment complexity, and a crisp, dry, lasting finish. From winemaker Brian Bicknell, formerly chief winemaker at Seresin Estate, it was grown at seven sites, mostly at the western end of the Wairau Valley, and is drinking well right now. Fine value" Michael Cooper

"The wine is complex and engaging on the nose showing grapefruit, apple, lemon peel and subtle gun smoke notes, followed by a concentrated palate that is finely textured and persistent. A gorgeous stylish rendition offering layers of complex flavours. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2019

"The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc comes from seven sites around Marlborough. It includes barrel-fermented and indigenous-yeast components, as well as 2% Sémillon, and spends six months on its lees prior to bottling. Ripe nectarine and pink grapefruit notes lead the way in this medium to full-bodied wine. It’s plump, mouthfilling and silky in texture, with decent length" Wine Advocate

This wine shows an array of fruit characters, ranging from citrus through to tropical notes. This is complemented by some secondary characters from the natural yeast ferments and also some barrel aging. The palate has an elegant structure with a creamy, textural mid-palate and a long finish.

Alc: 13.5%

2 x Mahi Marlborough Pinot Gris 2019

Characters from the location, natural yeast ferments and also some barrel aging give this Pinot Gris complexity and depth. The palate has an elegant structure with a creamy, textural mid-palate and a long finish.

Food Pairing: Match with seafood and poultry dishes.

Alc: 13.5%

2 x Mahi Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

The palate has an elegant structure with a textural, juicy mid-palate and a refreshingly dry finish. Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes this Rosé has an intense flavour that is perfectly suited to the style the winemakers want to achieve.

The wine comes from Pinot Noir grapes selected from two parcels in the Wairau Valley which are located in the cooler western end. Picked purposely for Rosé from low-cropping vines the juice was pressed off immediately to minimise time on skins and left to settle. Once settled the juice was fermented through to dryness at cool temperatures to retain the more delicate fruit characters. The focus with this wine is to provide a drink that has texture and depth, rather than focusing solely on primary fruit notes.

Alc: 13.2%
