Too often these days, winemakers, in seeking to make a Riesling to suit the 'modern' palate, try so hard to make their Riesling dry they forget to make it Riesling-y, which seems rather to miss the point. After all, the world is not short of crisp, dry whites, from Sauvignons to Pinot Grigios.


There is, however, a real shortage of is richly complex, aromatic whites with the bewitching balance of acidity, minerality and, yes, sweetness. So all hail the guys at Ribbonwood, who've achieved that rare thing, a just off dry Riesling that is truly, gloriously Riesling-y.

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
