Mahi Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2017 New Zealand Marlborough

$29.55

Mahi Boundary Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2017

The influence of wild yeast, vineyard site, barrel-fermentand time on lees makes for a rich and textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. Eleven months in French barriques has given this wine a wellrounded textural palate while still retaining freshness at the back of the palate.

Winemaking details
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 north-facing aspect means that the grapes receive as much sunshine hours as possible helping them to ripen well and are often some of the earlier grapes of our vintage.
The soil structure has a higher percentage of clay, which we have found gives extra weight and interest to the palate, adding texture and suppleness to the wine. The grapes were hand-picked, wholecluster 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. The wine was left on yeast lees for eleven months, which were stirred regularly. This meant that the yeast added both savoury notes and also served to work as a natural fining agent. After time in barrique it was gently racked then bottled without fining.

Vintage
There are a number of distinguishing characteristics about this vintage, withthe first being that it was one of our latest starts to date. Temperatures were not particularly low but the sunshine hours, especially in March had been a bit lower which slowed the process of photosynthesis.
This year we harvested at slightly lower Brix than usual to make sure that the fruit was clean and aromatic rather than leaving it out to go through the tail ends of both Cyclone Debbie and Cook.
Because of this something like 85% of the harvest came in over a relatively short period so there were a few long days and nights. The ferments were super aromatic and it was a year that gentle fruit handling and lower crop levels were appreciated, and one that really showed the value of having our own winery.
