The brainchild of winemaker Brent Marris, of Wither Hills fame, the Ned continues to push the boundaries and get the best out of this variety. This 2020 release offers exceptional drinking. Sensational value.
Exquisite balance and texture are the hallmarks of this intensely ripe focused wine. Dry in style with a natural hint of blush in colour this has ripe pear drop flavours, complex florals and a crisp minerally finish.
Joelle Thomson writes "The Ned is a 900m mountain peak in Marlborough's Waihopai Valley and formed the backdrop of winemaker Brent Marris' upbringing, as he biked and hiked in the region. This Pinot Gris is soft, smooth, medium-bodied and flavoursome thanks to a great balance of freshness and a smidgeon of residual sugar. Lively and lovely."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Plush and very fruity bouquet with aromas of ripe pear and sweet red apple, a fine leesy spice layer, fresh mineral water and a whisper of white flowers. On the palate - plump, fleshy, fruity and just dry with a touch of sweetness as it first invades the palate. Crisp with a satin texture, salivating acidity and flavours that mirror the nose. Balanced, well made and ready."
