Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A bright, fruity, aromatic Sauvignon Blanc hailing from New Zealand’s Marlborough region. Organically made with distinct elements of freshly cut kiwi skin, green grass and flinty splashes of tropical mango. Dry, with invigorating acidity complete with a stony quality carrying into the back. Anything herbal and creamy can be a delightful food partner - think herb encrusted goat’s cheese bites. 89 points - tasted January 2019
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A lighter-bodied Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand with lime and melon aromas leading to a palate of citrus persistance and lively acidity. Serve with fish prepared with fresh herbs and summer salads.
From Marlborough, South Island Momo Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is a vibrant, juicy, crisp, organically-grown Sauvignon Blanc. Fragrant with peach, melon, tropical fruit, fresh-cut grass and white pepper aromas. Super-dry with lifted flavours of fresh apple, melon, lime zest, savoury herb and a mouth-wateringly long finish. So clean and fresh, pair with a creamy pasta and shellfish dish. - Community Wine Reviews
