BACKGROUND: The 2010 MOMO Pinot Noir is a certified organic wine made using fruit from three Marlborough vineyards with varying soil characteristics. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked, hand-sorted, de-stemmed and then cooled before a pre-fermentation soaking period. After a natural fermentation in open-top fermenters the wine was transferred to French barriques to mature over a period of eleven months.
‘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.
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.
'Plums with a suggestion of mineral and dried herbs, spicy undertones and a textural, dry finish with charming fruit lingering on the aftertaste.' Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, May 2012
