Aromatic white wine
Blend: 100% Riesling
From: New Zealand, Marlborough
By: Andrew Hedley @ Ribbonwood
Ribbonwood Riesling is an aromatic white – a ‘proper Riesling’, from New Zealand’s Wairau Valley. The grapes grow upon fifteen year old vines in a vineyard planted with Ribbonwood and other native trees, to help maintain and improves the vineyard’s biodiversity and sustainability.
The Ribbonwood vineyard is run by Andrew Hedley, an Englishman from Gateshead with a PhD in applied chemistry, who moved to New Zealand to pursue his passion for winemaking. Sustainability is a big thing on Ribbonwood, with Andrew and his team doing all they can to farm sustainably. Thanks to an early and warm spring the 2015 vintage is a particularly good one. Ribbonwood Marlborough Riesling is filtered and fined.
