Description

"It is beautifully lifted on the nose showing green rockmelon, passionfruit, lemongrass and sweet basil characters, leading to a fruit-expressive palate that is intense and juicy. The wine delivers bright fruit flavours and vibrant acidity, finishing long and attractive" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2017

An engaging nose, with a hint of ripe citrus notes underlying a fresh herbal aromatic. Subtle mineral like complexities complete the picture and add interest. Ripe gooseberry and pronounced herbal flavors, along with classical capsicum and stony mineral tones. A supple and satisfying palate with persistent flavours is balanced by a fine acid backbone.

The fruit used to make the Ribbonwood 2016 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a selection of five Wairau Valley (90%) and one Waihopai Valley (10%) vineyards. This wine has all the characters expected from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The Wairau sites typically impart a mixture of tropical and citrus notes whilst the Waihopai site brings a subtle herbal element to the wine.

Food Pairing: Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc is great to relax with on its own after a long day. Seafood, particularly shellfish, pairs exceptionally well, but for something a little different, moules marinière or Pesto Genoves.
