The Ned 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2013 Pinot Noir

Less than a year ago I reviewed the previous vintages of these same wines under ‘The Ned’ label. This is surely a strong sign of a healthy business with wines turning over, and indeed putting some pressure on the production and marketing teams in releasing the next vintage even earlier! No doubt the production from the 268 ha Marisco vineyards between the Delta hills and Waihopi river will be geared up for growth, which will be handled easily by the state-of-the-art 6000 tonne capacity winery. Here I review the new release 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and 2013 Pinot Noir. The wines show good healthy fruit and winemaking, but I just can’t help wondering if another few months in bottle be to their benefit. I feel they have the potential to develop well.
