"Brent Marris loves new challenges. Previously the winemaker at Oyster Bay, he left to start Wither Hills but in his spare time he has created a single vineyard on the terraces of an old riverbed. It is slightly cooler than Marlborough but enjoys long Indian summers which allows the fruit to gently achieve full ripeness without losing its characteristic zesty freshness." - Winery Notes
The Ned Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Reviews
"This medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc is slightly leafy in style, but balances that with lush citrus fruit. The crushed tomato stalk and grapefruit come together in a dry, harmonious finish that's mainstream delicious." - 91, Wine Enthusiast
The Ned Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Tasting Notes
Pale straw with a light green hue. Vibrant aromas of lime zest, lemongrass and passion-fruit with underlying base notes of mineral and fresh herbs. A lively combination of passion-fruit and crisp green apple flavors are drawn across the palate by a pristine mineral acidity.
