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 passion fruit.

The Story

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.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 2012 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.
