The 2008 MOMO Sauvignon Blanc is made from a blend of fruit from vineyards located on the plains of the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. The Sauvignon was picked between March 29 and April 11 in the late evening and early morning, to ensure the fruit was cool when it reached the winery. After fermentation at a low temperature, to retain fruit character, the wine was allowed time sitting on yeast lees to give greater palate depth and complexity.
Pale in color, with a light green hue.
Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of minerality.
The palate is textural and rich with ripe tropical fruit and grapefruit. The finish is crisp and dry.
Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or just by itself as a refreshing aperitif.
"Light and citrusy, with grapefruit, tangerine and green melon flavors that linger on the bright, juicy finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made."
"Bright pale yellow. Pungent aromas of ginger, dusty stone, mint and flowers. Supple, juicy and intense, with a distinctly mineral saline quality complicating the enticing ginger and citrus peel flavors and giving definition to the middle palate. I like this wine's purity and dusty texture. Finishes quite dry but ripe, with a clinging, saline chewy quality and excellent length."
