Mahi Pinot Noir 2013

Brian Bicknell, formerly of Seresin estate established this Marlborough winery in 2001. The winery has 30 hectares under vine and a further 3 leased vineyards, all of which are run on organic principals. The vineyards are planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. The style of winemaking is to allow vineyards to speak through the vines with the wines being made in a very “hands off” manner. Vineyards are harvested by hand and fermentation is done with wild yeast. Mahi, meaning “our work, our craft” set out to produce wines which were the antithesis of what had become too commonplace in Marlborough by then, “fruit-bomb” wines, with many of the wines getter bigger and with little variation in style.

"Nice nose with a hint of violets and plenty of good cherry fruit. Also has a silky palate. A smart wine that punches well above its price." Ernie Walley

"A really beguiling wine that you want to sniff and sip again and again for its black cherry, violet perfumes and velvet palate." Martin Moran
