Momo Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Marlborough, New Zealand

MOMO Sauvignon Blanc is made from fruit grown in vineyards located on Seresin Estate in the heart of the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. The grapes were picked 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. ‘Offspring’ in Maori, MOMO reflects its heritage as part of the Seresin Estate family – wines grown naturally to express the season and land from which they come. “Pungently aromatic, this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc assails the senses with red capsicum (bell pepper) and gooseberry characters through lush passionfruit and tropical fruit overtones, other notes include fresh cut grass, tomato stalks, grapefruit or limes.” – From the winery
