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 soil structure there also has a higher percentage of clay, giving extra weight and interest to the palate, adding texture and suppleness to the wine.

Expert Reviews

A rare example of a true single vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon, the 2013 Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc is relatively restrained with notes of peach kernels, ripe apples and pink guava plus touches of cedar and baking bread. Medium-bodied, this beauty really delivers the goods on the palate with tons of stone fruit and apple-laced flavors plus very subtle oak influence and lovely texture. It finishes with great length.

Winery Tasting Notes

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.

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.
