Overview

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 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.

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.
