Expert Reviews

18.5 / 20 Points. "This wine is all that high-quality, fussed over, hand-crafted wine should be. Even for sauvignon blanc the wine mages a few interesting layers of complexity from the initial fresh burst of fruit to the lingering mouth-puckering finish, The fruit on the nose and palate is immediately and intensely appealing. Tropical fruit salad is a cliche for SB, but this wine captures the essence of this description with vivid arrays of aroma and flavour. It is the seductive mouth feel that underpins this initial appeal, however, and stamps the wine as a really classy example of its style. " Michael Ryan Cairns Post 21 Jan-09

Fresh prince of Marlborough Brent Marris is settling into this latest project with familiar ease and his trademark enthusiasm. Sourced from a cool part of Marlbourgh. The Ned brings a more subdued style: citrus and gently flinty mineral flavours are presented with a glossy smooth texture. Nick Stock QANTAS - The Australian Way Dec-08

Light and creamy yellow in colour, this wine is full of fruit salad flavours and it finishes softly with a smooth fair length. tiol Liquor News Nov-08

Once again the site has produced some amazing fruit! Clean green and bright. Full flavour, great balance and a lovely long flavour with beautiful mineral characters the growing season delivered.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Ned is the latest release from winemaker, Brent Marris. Named after one of the tallest rugged peaks to the southeast of the vineyard, The Ned is a deeply personal project for Brent. Growing up in Marlborough, Brent would hike and bicycle in this beautiful playground. The summit of The Ned, with its views across to the North Island and out to the Pacific Ocean is a place he remembers with great affection. Its rugged beauty was the inspiration to craft authentic wines from varieties for which the region is renowned. An impressive Marlborough icon, The Ned is an abiding symbol of “The Summit of Marlborough”.
