The focus with this wine is to provide a drink that has texture and depth, rather than focussing solely on primary fruit notes. We want a wine that satisfies across the palate, and employ a number of techniques to achieve this.

Our Sauvignon this year comes from nine different vineyards, all of them giving particular attributes to the final wine. In order to attain greater texture we pick ripe fruit, wanting layers rather than primary fruit on the nose. This year the first fruit for the blend was picked from the stoney portion of the Wadworth vineyard and finished with a late portion from the Guernsey block.

The hand-picked fruit was whole-cluster pressed so that the time on skins was minimised. A portion of this juice was barrel-fermented in older French oak to give greater weight, though ensuring that wood is not evident on the nose. The balance of the wine was fermented cool to retain the fruit characters from our vineyards.

Winery Tasting Notes


This wine shows an array of fruit characters, ranging from citrus through to tropical notes.


This is complemented by some secondary characters from the natural yeast ferments and also some barrel aging. The palate has an elegant structure with a creamy, textural mid-palate and a long finish.

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.
