The Oddbins Take

Smell plays a massive part in what you taste. That’s why when your nose is all bunged up food tastes bland. If you don’t believe us pinch your nose and eat a mouthful of banana, you’ll notice that it tastes muted, but when you release your nostrils you get a whoosh of banana flavour. The Ribbonwood Sauvignon is the epitome of aromatic; drinking a glass of this should be renamed “arom-ercise” as it’s a veritable nostril workout.

Ribbonwood is an exciting new initiative from the team at Framingham wines; a boutique winery based in Renwick Marlborough, renowned for the terrific quality of its aromatic varietals. The name Ribbonwood comes for the trees of the same name, New Zealand’s tallest native deciduous tree, which surround the vineyard. Over the last decade the guys at Ribbonwood have planted in excess of 1,000 native shrubs and trees to enhance the wineries wastewater treatment processes and the biodiversity of our vineyard. Their eco-friendly attitude doesn’t stop there, they have recently started using light-weight bottles and recycled cartons to reduce their carbon footprint. Since vintage 2009 they have been accredited for achieving 100% environmentally sustainable vineyard and winery practices.
