93 Points, Antonio Galloni’s Vinous: “The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Mahi (Marlborough) has a high level of concentration and energy. This is not a tropical thiol-driven style, but it is rich in gooseberry, elderflower, snow pea, apple and lemon flavors. Made entirely from free run juice, it has a delightful delicacy and a seamless texture. Around 30% was fermented with native yeast, while approximately one-fifth was fermented in barrel, adding layers of flavor and texture. The low pH from no press wine means that this has vitality and punch on the sinewy finish. Drinking window: 2022-2028.” Jan 2022Winery: “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.”Bottle750ml, screw capVarietal99% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% SémillonAlcohol13.5%Total Acidity7.3 g/LResidual Sugar1.6 g/LRegionMarlborough, New Zealand
