Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 MOMO Pinot Noir is a blend of fruit from four Marlborough vineyards with varying soil characteristics. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked, hand-sorted, de-stemmed and then cooled before a 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.

Bouquet: Aromas of cherry, mocha, new leather and hints of spice

Palate: The palate is concentrated with succulent dark fruits layered over smoky oak and fine mouth-coating tannins

Food Pairing: Delicious with most red meats, mushroom dishes, or hearty fish like Salmon

Cellaring: This wine has the potential to improve over the next five years

My Notes:

About Momo:

Meaning ‘offspring’ in Maori, MOMO sprung from Seresin Estate in Marlborough. Now grown up with its own identity and personality, MOMO is youthful, urbane and well travelled, with an easy charm. Seriously stylish, MOMO loves good food and great conversation.

Above all, MOMO is about enjoyment – the simple pleasure of good wine.

MOMO selects sustainably grown grapes from a small number of growers and uses minimal winemaking intervention to present wines with honest varietal character and quality.
