Description

Light salmon pink in colour this Rose offers a wonderful rose petal scented aroma that dovetails into pure berryfruit characters with bright crisp acid edges and finishing with fleshy tangelo and watermelon flavours.

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.

Vintage 2017 delivered a smaller than predicted crop for Marlborough’s wine industry, ensuring the vibrant, fruit-driven wines the region is so well known for, were achieved. Summer started early with warm weather leading to good flavour development, indicating the potential for great wine. Our vineyard staff and winemakers spent plenty of time in those early days of the season, working out how to get the best balance from our vines – and ultimately into our wines. Nature threw in some challenges along the way, with a major November earthquake, a cool and windy summer and stints of rain in Autumn. Rigorous vineyard management and careful harvest decisions have ensured our Marisco wines have an exciting spectrum of flavours from our harvested grapes. A growing year of challenges – resulting in wines to remember!

A delightful blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Gris, these grapes were gently pressed to minimise colour and tannin pick up; the resulting juices are fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks with select yeast strains, chosen for their ability to capture and enhance aromatic intensity whilst contributing positive palate texture attributes. Crafted to enjoy young and fresh; we recommend drinking this wine within 2 – 3 years of the vintage date.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with Mediterranean cuisine.
