Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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.

The 2010 MOMO Sauvignon Blanc is made from fruit grown in vineyards located on the plains of the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. The Sauvignon was picked between April 8 and April 17, 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.

Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or just by itself as a refreshing aperitif.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale bright yellow. Aromas of nectarine, quinine and minerals, plus a whiff of flowers. Rich, ripe and fruity, with nicely integrated acidity framing the quinine and agave flavors. Gains in thickness toward the back and finishes with noteworthy persistence. Plenty of personality here. "
89 Points

"Honeyed flavors of dried apricot are noticeable, with a fleshy texture and plenty of peach, nectarine and apricot notes. The acidity balances out the broad texture. Drink now. 6,000 cases made."
