Mahi Single Vineyard Boundary Farm Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2019)

The distinctive 2019 vintage (5*) was grown and hand-harvested on the lower slopes of the Wither Hills, and fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques. Bright, light yellow/green, it is a powerful, mouthfilling, very ageworthy wine, with concentrated, ripe, tropical fruit flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a crisp, dry (1.8 grams/litre of residual sugar), long finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
