Ned Maj

Grape –Sauvignon Blanc

  • Origin – ‘The vineyards of The Ned are located on the banks of the Waihopai River and on the southern side of the Wairau Valley. The river runs the length of the 268ha vineyard and is the origin of the shingle-based soil.’

  • Taste – ‘A nose of nettles and grass leads to generous gooseberry flavours with a smoky herbal twist on the palate. The stony terroir gives the wine a subtle gunflint minerality which delivers extra complexity.’

  • Dry – 1 23456789 – Sweet
