Reviews and Accolades

Review Mahi Marlborough Pinot Noir 2019James Suckling (jamessuckling.com): 93/100. This has very attractive aromas of fresh red cherries, as well as a gently spicy edge and rose hip, as well as leafy nuances. The palate has a fresh and spicy feel with a core of ripe, fresh red-cherry flavor. Silky tannins. Very drinkable now.

 

Review Mahi Marlborough Pinot Noir 2019Cameron Douglas MS: 94/100. Complex, varietal, spicy, fruity, immediately engages the senses and invites investigation. Aromas of wild red flowers, clove and baking spices of oak, dark cherries and plums, mineral and oak. Delicious on the palate with complex layers of fruits and baked nut, dried herb, a savoury mineral core and toasty spicy oak layers. There’s lots of energy and flavour, great mouthfeel from ripe, firm tannins and medium+ acidity. Well made and ready to enjoy from today and through 2027+.

 

Tasting Note

A full and rich bouquet, this wine is mouthfilling, ripe and supple with good complexity. Dark and red cherries, spices and plums combine with complex savouriness characters and soft tannins to give a well-rounded finish.

Additional information

Type: Red wine

Grape varial: Pinot Noir

Alcohol: 12.5% vol

Food match: rich game meat dishes like a venison and juniper stew.

Vineyards: Three different vineyards in Marlborough, New Zealand. All lending different characters to the wine. The Twin Valleys portion from the cooler Fareham Road area gives the palate structure that Mahi require, offering fineness to the back-palate. Fruit from Byrne vineyard this year gave some lovely delicacy, through bigger blacker fruit notes than we have seen before. The final portion came from Ward, approximately 45 kilometers south of Blenheim, providing great depth to the palate, with rich black fruit characters.

Winemaking: In the winery the grapes were predominantly destemmed before going to small vats for cold soaking prior to fermentation, allowing the extraction of soft tannins and colour at the juice stage, rather than in the harsher alcoholic stage during and after fermentation. The grapes were then fermented solely with indigenous yeasts, offering a wide variety of flavours and helping us to attain great texture. During fermentation the skins and juice were hand-plunged on average three times per day, with the temperatures peaking at about 34 degrees. When finished the wine was taken straight to French barriques where it sat for 10 months. The wine was then gently racked, blended, and lightly fined with organic egg whites before bottling.
