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”.
A lush, silken mouthful of spice laden pipfruit flavour, held neatly in check by a delicate acid freshness and a firm back bone of ultra long, super fine fruit tannin
A versatile wine to match with a broad range of food styles; the 2014 Kings Thorn would work especially well with whitebait patties, served warm, straight from the pan between two pieces of lightly buttered white bread.
