Product Description

2016 Mahi Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 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. 

Winemaking details 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 eight different vineyards, all of them giving particular attributes to the final wine.
The hand-picked fruit was whole-cluster pressed so that the time on skins was minimised. A portion of this juice, 12% this year, 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. The native ferment portion, 12%, also adds levels of flavour and texture, giving a savoury note that balances some sweeter fruit.
The final blend was made solely from free-run juice, as we feel it gives a more elegant and subtle wine, a key for us.
