More info

This wine comes from a small hillside parcel on the southeast boundary of the township of Blenheim. The vineyard is run by Perry and Stephanie Gilbert, who also live on the property, ensuring great attention to detail. The north-facing aspect maximises sunshine exposure. The grapes were hand-picked on the 12th of April.

The grapes were whole-cluster pressed straight to French barriques without any chemical additions. The juice was fermented with indigenous yeast in the barrels. The wine was left on yeast lees for eleven months, with regular stirring. After eleven months in French oak barrique, it was gently racked then bottled.

Mahi

Establishing Mahi, meaning ‘our work, our craft’, was a long-held dream for Brian and Nicola Bicknell. A seasoned international winemaker, Brian made Mahi’s first vintage in 2001, and in 2006 they finally purchased a winery in the very heart of Marlborough. It is the texture of these wines that particularly impresses; while far from heavy, they have a sense of substance that places them among the very best in Marlborough.
