2009 SAUVIGNON BLANCVINEYARD PROFILEThe 2009 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 27, 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.TASTING NOTESColour Pale in colour, with a light green hue.
Bouquet Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus with a hint of minerality.
Palate The palate is textural and rich with ripe tropical fruit and grapefruit. The finish is crisp and dry.
Food Pairing Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or just by itself as a refreshing aperitif.
Cellaring This wine is best enjoyed young.
