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.

Tasting Note


Uniquely salmon pink in colour, displaying juicy aromas of nectarine and white peach with underlining nuances of spice. The palate is lush and bright with juicy white peach flavours supported by spicy poached pear. This leads to an unctuous length stemming from vibrant Marlborough ripeness.


A versatile wine when it comes to food matching with its notable fruitiness and gentle acidity. The Ned Pinot Gris 2023 will match with everything from garlic and herb roasted potatoes to moreish chicken and even a slow cooked pork tenderloin. If you’re feeling a little bit adventurous, try it with freshly prepared beef tartar with all the toppings.


Crafted to be enjoyed at the peak of its vibrancy and freshness, we recommend drinking this wine within 2-3 years of vintage date.



Marlborough, New Zealand


A portion of the Pinot Gris fruit, which is naturally pink in colour, underwent a period of skin contact to enhance colour and texture in the juice. The fruit was then gently pressed to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Selected yeast strains were chosen to enhance varietal intensity and mouthfeel with a slow, steady fermentation to preserve these aromatics. The salmon pink colour is a stylistic signature of The Ned Pinot Gris.

A warm and wet winter spurred an early start to the growing season with fully charged soil moistures and warm ambient temperatures in early spring. The few frosts through September and October did little to disrupt the healthy development of strong, lush canopies.

Flowering began with cooler temperatures and periodic bouts of rain in the early summer, with the weather improving as we headed towards Christmas; typical with respect to warmth, sunshine hours and rainfall.

Late summer warmth in late February and March along with careful canopy management, delivered slowly ripened, disease free, incredibly clean fruit!

Harvest commenced in mid-March. Due to the long, cool ripening season, fruit was harvested significantly later than usual but retained all of its vibrancy of flavour and crisp, ripe acids.

The team are excited by the bright flavour expressions and huge diversity of character coming through in the wines of the 2023 vintage.

Awards & Accolades

  • New Zealand International Wine Show 2022
  • Cameron Douglas MS 2022

"Fresh, vibrant, fruity and varietal bouquet with scents of fresh pears and red skinned apples, a layer of citrus and tree ripened quince. A dry wine touches the palate first with contrasting satin textured fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet, medium+ acid line and a lengthy refreshing finish. Best drinking from 2023 through end of summer 2025."
