Winemaker's Notes:

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.

My Notes:

About Momo:

Meaning ‘offspring’ in Maori, MOMO sprung from Seresin Estate in Marlborough. Now grown up with its own identity and personality, MOMO is youthful, urbane and well travelled, with an easy charm. Seriously stylish, MOMO loves good food and great conversation.

Above all, MOMO is about enjoyment – the simple pleasure of good wine.

MOMO selects sustainably grown grapes from a small number of growers and uses minimal winemaking intervention to present wines with honest varietal character and quality.
