Mahi Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Mahi, meaning 'our work, our craft' is the labour of love of Brian Bicknell whose philosophy is to promote the individuality of various Marlborough vineyards. This Sauvignon Blanc comes from a small hillside parcel on the south east boundary of Bleinheim, meticulously card for by the Gilberts.

Wild yeast - Textural - Grapefruit

A fine expression of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc: good value, well balanced, and pleasant flavours.

A real summery glass, this wine pairs well with light fish flavours, or crumbly cheeses like goat’s cheese and feta. 

The Mahi vineyard is the realisation of a dream for husband and wife winemaker team Brian and Nicola Bracknell. Its name - meaning “our work” or “our craft” - points to how much of themselves they have invested in delivering quality wines.

This is one of our more popular Sauvignon Blancs, and will please newcomers to the style as much as seasoned connoisseurs. 

Mahi Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2017

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 means that the grapes receive as much sunshine hours as possible helping them to ripen well and are often some of the earlier grapes of our vintage.

The soil structure has a higher percentage of clay, which we have found gives extra weight and interest to the palate, adding texture and suppleness to the wine.

The grapes were hand-picked, whole-cluster pressed and taken straight to French barriques without any chemical additions. It was fermented with indigenous yeast in the barrels, helping to add complexity and texture, without dominating the nose.

The wine was left on yeast lees for eleven months, which were stirred regularly. This meant that the yeast added both savoury notes and also served to work as a natural fining agent.

After time in barrique it was gently racked then bottled.
