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. 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.
The 2014 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. Grapes were hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed and naturally fermented with wild yeast. Forty percent of the blend was aged in seasoned French oak barriques for five months, to give added texture and complexity.
