A garnet colored medium-bodied red that presents aromas of cherry, mocha and new leather with hints of spice. Flavors of dark fruit and smoky oak integrate nicely with firm, succulent tannins.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Naturally fermented and then aged for 11 months in seasoned French barriques, the 2009 MOMO Pinot Noir displays a pale ruby color and aromas of ripe cranberries and red currants with nuances of mulberries, under brush, warm beets and cumin seed. Medium bodied and with plenty of ripe expressive berry and earthy flavors in the mouth, it has a low level of fine-grained tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drinking now, it should keep through 2014.
Momo is a line of wines produced by Seresin Estate in Marlborough, New Zealand. The portfolio is appropriately named – Momo means “offspring” in Maori. The wines are made from grapes grown in Seresin’s three biodynamic vineyards and from dedicated growers in the region. Seresin’s winemaker Clive Dougall uses minimal intervention to present wines with honest varietal character and quality.
|A blend of fruit from four Marlborough vineyards with varying soil characteristics. The fruit was hand-picked, destemmed and cold soaked for several days to extract color and enhance bright fruit notes. After fermentation in open-top fermentors, the wine matured for 11 months in French oak.
|The sentinel stone at the entrance to our Home Vineyard in Marlborough signals the path to both our winery and our philosophy. The stone bears a subtle handprint, a symbol of the individual and of creative endeavour; it represents our philosophy to work traditionally with natural elements and elicit a true Marlborough character in our wines and our extra virgin olive oils.
Organically and biodynamically grown, hand-tended and hand-picked, the grapes from our estate are transformed into artisan wines through gentle, traditional winemaking – wine of passion grace and spirit.
