Before founding Marisco Vineyards on the banks of the Waihopai River, owner-winemaker Brent Marris—the son of pioneering Marlborough winemaker John Marris—developed the acclaimed Oyster Bay and Wither Hills brands. His latest wine label, The Ned, was named for Marlborough’s tallest mountain peak, which served as a playground for Marris as a kid.

The aromas are intoxicating, heady, and dense, with notes of honey, orange marmalade, and lemon curd. This wine is made for pleasure and long warm evenings on a porch, paired with great company and a sharp blue cheese.
