Momento Mori Fistful Of Flowers White 2017Momento Mori
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Heathcote (Victoria, Australia)
GRAPE VARIETAL: Moscato Giallo & Vermentino
This 2017, the latest release from Momento Mori, is a 9.3% ABV blend of Moscato Giallo and Vermentino which was grown using organic practices in Heathcote. It’s certainly aromatically-charged and, as the cuvée name suggests, filled with floral notes of Turkish delight, peach blossom and citrus rind that lead to a refreshing palate featuring green melon and a hint of saline. While perfect for daytime drinking under the sun, we think it’s also a brilliant match alongside spice-driven cuisines.
Recommended Food Pairing: Chicken tacos; fish tacos; garlic butter on toast; proscuitto and melon; pesto dishes or pasta; ricotta and spinach ravioli; crab cakes; grilled seafood with garlic and herbs; spicy fried mussels or clams; spiced pork sausage; buffalo mozzarella; pecorino; feta; ricotta; spinach quiche; roasted asparagus and zucchini; cream leek soup.
