Pure and attractive on the palate, with notes of soft white stone-fruit, allied to a savoury warm hay character. The palate is appealing, with layers of orchard fruit, soft white blossoms, mouth-filling rounded texture and a bright refreshing acidity.
Delicious with pork, Asian inspired dishes or try it with a salad of blue cheese, pear and walnut.
CELLARING: This wine has the potential to improve over the next five years, whilst providing fresh lively drinking immediately.
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.
Certified organic grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch-pressed before being naturally fermented with wild yeast. Around 15 percent of the blend was fermented and aged in old French oak barriques for five months to give additional texture and complexity. The remaining 85% was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Pure and attractive on the palate, with notes of soft white stone-fruit, allied to a savoury warm hay character. The palate is appealing, with layers of orchard fruit, soft white blossoms, mouth-filling rounded texture and a bright refreshing acidity.
