BACKGROUND:‘Offspring’ in Maori, MOMO reflects its heritage as part of the Seresin Estate family - wines grown naturally to express the season and land from which they come.
(notes for 2012 vintage)
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. Grapes were hand-picked between April 12 and April 21, 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.
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.
