Brent Marris, Marlborough born and raised, spent years as a youngster exploring the landscape of his home region. He put that exploration to good use when, in 2003, he started his search for a vineyard property. The site he chose was 268ha of vineyards on the banks of the Waihopai River, on the southern side of the Wairau Valley. From here, Brent started Marisco Vineyards and achieved international success with his wines, most notably with his flagship brand “The Ned”.
TASTING NOTE Beautifully perfumed, this Pinot Noir is bursting with bright red fruit and wild herb aromas complimented by some exotic oak spice. Flavours of ripe red cherry and raspberry are complemented by fine, silky tannins and a long savoury structure. Subtle hints of chocolate and spice on the finish complete a wine of charm and distinction.
FOOD MATCH A wine to be enjoyed on its own or a great match to beef carpaccio or roast pork.
