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

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

Awards & Accolades

  • New Zealand International Wine Show 2022
  • The Real Review: Bob Campbell 2023

"Almost a pale rosé with a slight tint of straw colour. Ripe pear and stone fruit flavours with a subtle hint of sweetness that is balanced with a suggestion of fresh acidity. Delicately aromatic wine with an appealing aroma."

  • 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."
