The 2011 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 6 and April 21, 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.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale in colour, with a light green hue.
The nose displays aromas of tropical fruit and ripe pear, with herbaceous notes and a hint of chalky minerality.
The palate is textural and rich with subtle notes of lemon zest and passionfruit. The finish is crisp and dry.
Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or just by itself as a refreshing aperitif.
This wine is best enjoyed young.
