2014 Momo (Seresin) Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

SKU #1264504 92 points Bob Campbell

 Dry, flavoursome and moderately gutsy Sauvignon Blanc, with green capsicum, lemongrass, gooseberry, nut and nettle flavours. The wine also shows a thread of chalky mineral character. Good food wine offering value at this price.  (10/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Organic Sauvignon Blanc offers intense notes of gooseberries, freshly squeezed lemons, coriander seeds and grass. Light-bodied with tons of citrus zing in the mouth, it has a lively acid backbone and nice, long, refreshing finish. (LPB)  (2/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Floral, with honeysuckle and lemon verbena notes at the core, and juicy citrus and pear flavors on a medium body. Crisp finish. (MW, Web-2016)

K&L Notes

One of the best priced NZ Sauv Blancs we have in the store. Made by Seresin Estate, one of Marlborough's leading organic and biodynamic certified producers. Snappy grapefruit, citrus zest, stony minerals and white florals from the excellent 2014 vintage. Nice weight on the palate keeps the racy acid in check and fleshes out the wine. Great seafood wine at a price you can afford to drink any night of the week. A real staple for me to keep around the house. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L New Zealand Wine Buyer)

This has long been one of my go-to Marlborough Sauvs. Seresin are certified organic and biodynamic and have a fantastic estate bridging the Renwick and Southern Valleys subregions of Marlborough. This wine incorporates a dash of barrel fermented Semillon to add texture and intrigue. The entire wine is very naturally made with wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention. The best thing is that this vintage the price has actually decreased allowing us to sell this little beauty under $20! It's now ever easier to recommend to anyone.
Top Value!

Varietal:

Sauvignon Blanc

- One of the best known "international" varieties originally cultivated in France and considered the parent of, with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon. Sauvignon's wonderfully distinctive aromatics generate some of wine's most colorful descriptors, among them "cat pee," herbaceous, grassy, citrusy the world over. In France, the apex of Sauvignon Blanc production is the Loire Valley, in the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, where the terroir expresses itself most beautifully through the grape. Sauvignon Blanc is also the leading white grape varietal in Bordeaux, where it is paired with the fatter, richer Sémillon to varying degrees. Relatively easy to cultivate, though more suited to cool climates, Sauvignon Blanc has made inroads in Europe outside of France, especially in Northeastern Italy's Friuli and Alto Adige, but also on the Slovenian border. These lovely wines are often overshadowed by Sauvignon Blanc's achievements in the New World, namely New Zealand, South Africa and California. New Zealand's Sauvignon Blancs, more conspicuously fruity than most French examples, landed the small island nation on the world wine map in the late-1980s and 1990s. South African Sauvignons are one of the most successful international varieties produced in that country and are often quite elegant and affordable. In California, Robert Mondavi managed to, almost single-handedly, created a market for Sauvignon Blanc by renaming his oak-fermented version Fumé Blanc. While some wineries still use the name, California Sauvignon Blanc has secured its place in the California wine pantheon, particularly those from the Napa Valley. Washington State, Chile and Argentina also have considerable plantings of the grape.
Country:

New Zealand

- New Zealand is an extremely diverse wine-growing nation. The long history of producing wine started in the 1830s with wineries such as Mission Estate (1850) and Te Mata Estate (1896) still producing wine today. The two islands hold a multitude of different growing climates ranging from warmer areas such as Hawke’s Bay to very cool regions such as Waitaki, and Awatere. Most regions are defined as Maritime with the exception being Central Otago that has a moderate Continental climate with the high elevation creating dramatic diurnal swings in temperature. The plethora of grapes grown in New Zealand reflects this diverse microclimate make up. Everything has a place here, Bordeaux varietals and Syrah in Hawke’s Bay, Chardonnay and Pinot in Nelson, Pinot Noir and Riesling in Central Otago , aromatic whites in Waipara and pretty much everything you can imagine in Marlborough. New Zealand is also one of the “greenest” wine producing nations on earth (94% of wine certified sustainable in 2013) with a strong focus on organic and Biodynamic farming.
