Right in the heart of the magical Waihopai Valley, a million miles from anywhere, lies The Ned - one of Marlborough's most famous peaks - and the childhood playground for founder and wine maker, Brent Marris. It's a place where nights are two degrees colder and days two degrees hotter. Where possibilities take hold and good times unfold, where the young at heart thrive. And where there's liveliness and adventure in every bottle.

‘Pinnacle’ defines the premium selection of The Ned range. These are specific wines that have ascended to loft heights and are vintages which have reached their absolute peak in flavour profile and balance. Truly distinctive of our Waihopai Valley vineyards.

Explosive aromas of ripe lime and mango are
accentuated by the lift of vanilla bean and clove to create an aura of lusciousness. The tropical intensity derived from the elevated terraces of Leefield Station fills the midpalate, followed by a vibrant zesty acidity that carries the wine through to a long and juicy finish.


The crisp, bold and refreshing nature of this wine
will pair beautifully with vegetarian cuisine and fish.

Select parcels of fruit were field destemmed and gently pressed into stainless steel tanks. Following several days of cold settling, the juice was roughly racked to ferment with the slightly higher carry over of fruit solids designed to promote flavour complexity and texture. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on light lees and an early season bottling helped to capture the wine’s natural exuberance and freshness. The combined use of expressive ripe fruit and oak influence align to promote the very best of what this wine has to offer.

Record rainfall in July and August and a warm start to September, permitted an energetic start to the growing season. This coincided with the recorded number of frosts nearly double the usual number. However, frost risk abated in early October, replaced by warm temperatures and humid northerly airflows.

Early season varieties flowered rapidly while later season varietals were slightly troubled by a cool, wet start to December. However, increasing temperatures and a warm, dry January ensured an abundance of fruit.

Despite heavy rainfall in February, good vineyard practices and an improvement in the sunshine hours through the tail end of February meant any instances of botrytis quickly dried up leaving the vast majority of the fruit clean and ripe.

Harvesting began in early March due to early season disease pressure with positive fruit flavours indicating physiological ripeness.

The team are excited about the structural diversity and bright complex flavours of the 2022 wines.
