The Oddbins Take

***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

Pinot Noir, as any fan of Sideways will tell you, is a tricky and temperamental grape – difficult and delicate both in the growing and the wine-making. But don’t despair, or drive your car into a tree (just try getting spare parts for a Saab these days), just twist the cap off one of these rather elegant Pinots from Marlborough. Made from hand-picked grapes this wine is aged in French oak to give a superb balance of summery fruits and smoky undertones. Which makes us think it might just be time to light the barbeque…

Gabriel Stone in Drinks Business, 6/5/15: "While Marlborough wines are known for their plush fruit, Ribbonwood Pinot Noir offers an additional dimension due to the fact that its vineyards are planted in an east-west direction. Grapes on the shaded south side of the vine bring a more herbaceous, complementary element to the final wine"
Ribbonwood is an exciting new initiative from the team at Framingham (Est. 1994); a boutique winery based in Renwick, Marlborough, renowned for the terrific quality of its aromatic varietals. They planted their first Ribbonwood, New Zealand’s tallest native deciduous tree, beside the winery back in 1998. Today numerous trees border the original Ribbonwood Block vineyard. Over the last ten years they have planted in excess of 1,000 native shrubs and trees to enhance both the winery wastewater treatment processes and the biodiversity of the vineyard. More recently, the Ribbonwood packaging was switched to embrace light-weight bottles and recycled cartons, further reducing the carbon footprint. Since vintage 2009 the winery has been accredited for achieving 100% environmentally sustainable vineyard and winery practices
