Momo Pinot Gris 2010
The 2010 MOMO Pinot Gris is a blend of certified organic grapes from Seresin’s Home and Raupo Creek vineyards located in the Wairau and Omaka Valleys of Marlborough respectively. Grapes were hand-picked between April 16 and April 22, whole-bunch pressed and naturally fermented with wild yeast. Fifty percent of the blend was aged in seasoned French oak barriques for five months, to give added texture and complexity.
Pale in colour, with a golden hue. Perfumed aromas of ripe pear and quince with notes of oatmeal and chalk. The palate is concentrated and textural with flavours of honey and stone-fruit, balancing a savoury creaminess with a fine acidity. Winemaker: Clive Dougall
Growing Region: Marlborough
Grape Variety: Pinot Gris
Residual Sugar: 3.0g/L
MOMO wines are made using grapes from Seresin’s three biodynamic vineyards and, for some wines, grapes are also selected from a dedicated grower’s vineyard which is in conversion to organics.
From these roots, MOMO has developed its own identity, embracing traditional winemaking to produce wines which are true to variety and reflect the essence of their fruit characters.
