Overview

We aim to retain some citrus and freshness character in the wine, rather than an oily, over-blown style of Gewurztraminer.

The fruit comes from a small parcel in the Twin Valleys Vineyard, located in the Fareham Lane area of Marlborough. The vineyard, owned and run by Pete and Anne Reed, is at the western end of the Wairau Valley where it meets the Waihopai Valley. Many years of river flow action and earthquake movement have resulted in a vineyard that is elevated but still dominated by river stones. There is enough silt and clay intermingled to provide the vines with the nutrients they require, and also gives the wines extra palate weight and texture.

The vines for this wine come from four different clones, all contributing their own characters.

Winery Tasting Notes

The fermentation was not inoculated so the wild yeasts that come from the vineyard completed the fermentation. A real goal at Mahi is to make wine in as natural a way possible and we have found that the succession of different yeasts from the vineyard provide wines of greater depth and complexity.

The wine was left to rest on yeast lees, with the occasional stir to assist in giving some extra savoury mid-palate richness.

This wine is full and rich, but is made so that it is dry and works well with a wide range of foods. These can be from Asian inspired dishes right through to desserts, so it really is a wine that can be used right through the meal.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

This year Brian Bicknell celebrates the making of his twenty-forth vintage, an achievement that has seen him accumulate experience in not only Marlborough, but also in Chile, France and Hungary.

Returning to Marlborough permanently in 1996, Brian identified that individual sites within the region produced markedly different characters. At a time when Marlborough was considered to be producing wines that hid the diversity of the region, Mahi was born. Brian’s vision to showcase the differences and complexities that these terroirs offer, has been exceeded with every single vineyard release.
