The fruit used to make the Ribbonwood Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a range of Wairau Valley vineyards, with soils ranging from sandy gravels through to rich loam to dense clay.
All vines are trained in the vertical shoot positioning system and all vineyards are sustainably managed.
Each parcel of fruit is kept separate in the winery. This allows plenty of room to handle a multitude of picking times, yeast strains and temperatures, resulting in optimal blending options.
The grapes are crushed and the juice is fermented in stainless-steel tanks of varying size.
