Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

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

Critical Acclaim

"A wonderfully smooth and classy expression of ripe red fruit flavors, warm baking spices, vanillin and mineral accents. Very harmonious, with a long finish. Drink now through 2016."
