The Ned

The Ned Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Waihopai River Marlborough 13%
Vibrant, crisp and vibrant fruit centred bouquet with lots of fresh fruit aromas - Gala apple, Banana-Passionfruit then sweet fresh herbs. The palate is equally vibrant with flavors apples, pear with light tropical fruit notes; refreshing acidity in a just dry style; balanced and well made. A style to please many - with or without food.
3.5 Stars

The Ned Pinot Gris 2014 Marlborough 14%
A gentle apricot blush appearance with spun-gold hues
Sweet and generous bouquet of white fleshed fruits - poached pear and white peach, apple and a light floral layer. The palate shows a wine which is lush and fruity, crisp and just dry on the finish. Balanced and well made - again a style to please many - on its own or with food.
3.5 Stars

The Ned Pinot Noir 2013 Southern Valleys Marlborough 14%
Lots of Pinosity with a bold red fruits bouquet - plums and dark cherry; lots of raspberry dark velvet rose highlights; mild oak adds complexity. Overall a fresh youthful expression. The palate reveals a dry, light-bodied wine with medium fine tannins and medium+ acidity; a fresh youthful and fruity expression in a drink now style. A wine that will also mature for 2-3 years with ease. Balanced and well made with medium length and great appeal.
4 Stars
