In the 1980s, legendary wine writer Oz Clarke lavished praise on New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, dubbing it ‘arguably the best in the world’ and instantly establishing the small island nation as a rising star of the wine world. Since then, Aotearoa — and particularly the spectacular region of Marlborough at the top of the country’s South Island — has become globally renowned for its signature Sauvignon style: citrus-stacked and complex, with intensely green notes of capsicum, young tomato stalk, and freshly cut grass. But there’s more to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc than meets the eye — something Brian and Nicola Bicknell have spent over 20 years proving at their Wairau Valley winery Mahi. Crafted with hand-picked fruit sourced from six different vineyards and supplemented by a gentle infusion of Sémillon, Mahi’s extraordinarily elegant expression of this much-adored varietal exhibits a depth of flavour and personality rarely seen from this part of the world.

Doing the Mahi in sun-drenched Marlborough
In New Zealand’s most famous wine region, fertile fields unfurl green-gold wings underneath little rain and ample sunshine.
