Wine has always been a part of Costas Mouzouras’s life.  From early childhood in Cyprus, pruning, harvesting and stomping grapes in the family vineyard, to making homemade grappa, Costas was born with a fascination for how wine is made and develops, and how it brings people together.  
Today, Costas is the Wine Director of Gotham Wines a Manhattan wine store.  He frequently lectures on wine to industry professionals and amateurs, presenting real, down-to-earth, straightforward descriptions of wine and how it is one of life’s wonderful indulgences.

Hold the Citrus please!

MOMO Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Marlborough New Zealand

If you are tired of what became the ‘typical’ style for a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc then it’s time for you to taste the MOMO.

This light colored Sauvignon Blanc from Wairau Valley starts out with aromas of stone fruit, followed by floral and mineral hints.

On the palate is clean and round followed by flavors of tropical fruit and a hint of grapefruit. Nice long grassy, herbal finish

A great refreshing glass of wine!
