"Distinctive and floral, with a honeyed overtone to the lime and melon flavors. Boldly juicy on the finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases imported. –MW " (WS)

"The 2015 Organic Sauvignon Blanc is beginning to show a little development with honey and lanolin notes over a core of peaches and lemon curd plus a waft of dried herbs. The medium-bodied palate gives excellent intensity with a satiny texture and plenty of verve, finishing on a honeyed lemon note." (WA)

Winery Notes:
‘Offspring’ in Maori, MOMO reflects its heritage as part of the Seresin family - wines grown naturally to express the season and land from which they come. Labelled as organic from the 2014 vintage, reflecting our commitment to our philosophy and practices. MOMO wines are made using grapes from Seresin’s three biodynamic vineyards, as well as from fruit from three selected organic growers.

Tasting Note:
Displays a complex nose with aromas of tropical fruit, herbaceous notes and a hint of cassis. The natural fermentation adds a rich and textural quality to the palate, with subtle notes of lemon zest and passion fruit. The finish is crisp and dry. Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or enjoy by itself as a refreshing aperitif.

Winemaking:
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.
