K&L Notes

Made by our good friends and direct import partners at Framingham; the Ribbonwood label represents one of the best value, classic New Zealand Sauv Blancs on the market. The value for money here is off the charts. Winemaker's Notes: "Classic passionfruit and grapefruit flavours, smartened up with hints of mineral. Mouth-watering acidity makes you want to take another sip. Close your eyes and imagine cool, clear water rushing over fist sized stones on its way to the sea."

    It's absolutely unreal to find a wine of this caliber that is made with such care for under $10. Often at these price points, wines rarely see human hands, being almost entirely machine produced. That is definitely not the case with this wine. Framingham winemaker Andrew Hedley is involved and hands-on in every aspect of this wines life, which is why it has turned out so darn phenomenal. Fresh, bright, crisp, and lively characters dominate this wine. There are so many nice elements to this wine, it can almost be mistaken for his higher-tier, single-block series. My absolute favorite under $10 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and one you can trust in quality and taste.

    Everything you could want in a classic, everyday NZ Sauv Blanc. This wine exemplifies that fresh, crisp, juicy style of Sauv Blanc that put NZ wines on the map. The nose is bursting with white blossom, citrus peel, jasmine and passion flower. The palate is crisp and zesty but also has a soft textural element and more layers of flavor than anyone would expect at this price point. Ribbonwood is the second label of one of my favorite producers in NZ - Framingham. The wines are made by the inimitable Andrew Hedley who is without doubt one of the most exciting, passionate and downright awesome winemakers you could ever meet. Don't settle for mass-produced, commercial, bulk NZ savvy when you can have something like this crafted by a master of his trade.

    This Marlborough gem is an absolute steal. Blended from single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc sourced from a unique site in Wairau Valley, the wine is especially aromatic and lively. Bright notes of gooseberry, grapefruit and zesty lime are countered with subtle spice, enlivening and refreshing the palate. Definitely pick this one up as a daily quaffer!
