Background, Vintage and Winemaker Notes:
BACKGROUND:‘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.
MOMO wines are made using grapes from Seresin’s three biodynamic vineyards and, for some wines, grapes are also selected from a dedicated grower’s vineyard which is in conversion to organics.
From these roots, MOMO has developed its own identity, embracing traditional winemaking to produce wines which are true to variety and reflect the essence of their fruit characters.
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.
