Mazi means ‘Together’. The duo behind this 100% Rosé producer winemakers Toby Porter and Alex Katsaros.
Toby spent over 15 years at d’Arenberg and Alex has spent more than a decade working with alternative varieties both in Australia and abroad. In 2016 their obsession with Rosé became tangible with the release of their first Rosé under the Mazi label.
The grapes are handpicked, crushed, and immediately pressed to extract the optimum level of flavour and tannin. The wines are provincial in colour and style, derived from a minimal period of juice on skins prior to pressing.
The cornerstone of Mazi is their incredible value single vineyard Grenache Rosé from Blewitt Springs. The pinnacle of production at Mazi is the extremely limited and aspirational barrel fermented hand-picked Rosé made from Mourvèdre and Grenache. 2021 also sees the debut of some very exciting wines, a Mataro Cinsault Grenache Rosé and what is believed to be Australia’s first Mavrodaphne Rosé produced from just 3 rows of vines.
