Natalie's Score: 89/100
Vibrant and crisp with a terrific nervy and racy acidity running through the core of this New Zealand white wine made from the country's iconic Sauvignon Blanc grape. This kiwi savvy is herbal and refreshing with lots of mouth-watering, lime zest acidity for a range of dishes. There's some lemon zest on the finish. Intense, vibrant and clean. Mouth-watering acidity weaves its way through fresh aromas of grapefruit and guava. Bring it, especially for movie night with fried chicken!
Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: oysters Rockefeller, seafood hot pot, mussels a la Portuguese.

|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Pale, almost clear lemon in the glass. An enticing nose, full of promise- salinity, asparagus and garrigue. The palate delivers with herbal, grassy notes. Acidity is zesty but balanced. Long, lingering finish. Everything you would want from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Great Value. Pair with oysters, scallops, feta cheese. Tasted April 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|Craig Haynes WSET III, FWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Seresin Estate practices organic and biodynamic viticulture so it is no surprise that it produces an organic sauvignon blanc. From the 2016 Momo Organic, anticipate pronounced aromas including white flowers, white peach and sea stones. On the palate, expect lime to take the lead and to stay on as the finish.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Naturally fermented with wild yeasts and six months on lees, this fresh Organic, Sauvignon Blanc is a pretty pale lemon green colour - with grassy, lime zest, snow peas, gooseberry, grapefruit, kiwi skin and a flint-driven stony essence. Flavours reflect this alongside nectarine stone fruit, cooked asparagus and lemon citrus notes with an herbal cilantro characteristic lingering into the finish. Bright acidity allows for a crisp, clean classically mouthwatering. Would be a nice accompaniment with anything from the sea, or spring rolls. 90 points
|Lori Sweet rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Off-dry with a very pronounced floral bouquet. Best served cold. Medium finish.
|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Broad nose showing lemon, pineapple, lemon grass, boxwood, and lemon skin. Quite crisp and clean, extra dry, and refreshing. Palate contributes lemon and steely minerality before tomato leaf moves in on the finish. Very typical and true to style. Do up some shellfish with lemon and garlic or toss a grilled chicken and goat cheese salad.
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An organic Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of peach, cantaloupe, and tropical fruit with notes of freshly mowed grass, mineral notes, chalk, and white peppercorn.
Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with flavours of lemon, granny smith apple and orchard fruit.
Pair with salty tempura fried appetizers.
Tasted at the Pure Discovery New Zealand Wine event in Ottawa May 2019.
