The Ned Waihopai River Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand 2022

Marisco Vineyards is a family-owned and operated, award-winning Marlborough wine producer and home to iconic wine brand The Ned.

Established in 2006, The Ned was the passion project of esteemed Marlborough winemaker Brent Marris, inspired by his childhood stomping ground in Marlborough's Wither Hills range. Following The Ned's meteoric rise to fame Brent turned to his own family history for inspiration when looking to expand the portfolio. This saw the birth of The Kings' Series brand in 2009, a series of wines that pay homage to the scandalous and often notorious stories of Marris' own forebears; the de Marisco's.

Born of the Waihopai Valley, The Ned represents the vibrant diversity that is so prevalent in the Marlborough wine-growing region. One of Marlborough’s famous peaks, The Ned mountain served as the playground for Marisco founder, Brent Marris, during his youth. The ethos “Young At Heart” encapsulates this wine; a true expression of grassroots winemaking that places the energy and liveliness of adventure in every bottle.


Punchy aromatics of lemon and lime citrus with undertones of juicy tropical fruits, fill the nose. Plush on the palate, showing juicy grapefruit freshness with lively acidity carrying these classical Waihopai Valley characters to a lengthy finish.


You will not go amiss with flavours that complement the distinct varietal character in this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - a style that has a real sense of place. Think seafood and fresh harvested salads loaded with herbs. Try scallops sautéed in garlic butter with a slash of lemon, accompanied by a rocket and herb salad topped with fresh goat’s cheese.
