Ribbonwood Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016
"Classic, true Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Straight as a die." - Sally Easton MW, November 2016
"Ripe, tropical fruit salad. Round and appealing, sweet-spice note amid melon, pineapple, apple and citrus fruits. Hint of leafiness too. Classic, true Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Straight as a die." - Sally Easton MW, November 2016
Located in the heart of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Ribbonwood is the sister winery to Framingham wines, making deliciously modern wines in the Marlborough style: expressively aromatic with vibrant fruit flavours. We have listed these wines for a number of years now and they have always delivered quality and value for money. Our recent tasting with Sally Easton MW was cause only to remind us how good they are! Since vintage 2009 Ribbonwood have been accredited for achieving 100% environmentally sustainable vineyard and winery practices. Over the last ten years, they have planted over 1,000 native shrubs and trees, enhancing the biodiversity of the vineyard. More recently, they embraced light-weight bottles and recycled cartons, further reducing their carbon footprint.
