Momo Pinot Noir 2013
- Certified Organic
RegionMarlborough, New Zealand
‘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.
The nose demonstrates earthy, herbal and dark fruit characters with hints of undergrowth. The focused palate is concentrated with succulent dark fruits layered over smoky oak and fine mouth-coating tannins. Delicious with most red meats, mushroom dishes or hearty fish like salmon. This wine has the potential to improve over the next five years, evolving and developing complexity with bottle age.
The 2013 MOMO Pinot Noir is a blend of fruit from three Marlborough vineyards with varying soil characteristics. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked, hand-sorted, destemmed. After a natural fermentation in open-top fermenters the wine was transferred to French barriques to mature over a period of ten months.
