Pinot Noir Marlborough Wairau New Zealand
A fully Certified Organic wine, fashioned from Pinot Noir grown to three Marlborough vineyards which exhibit profound affinity. Momo is Maori for offspring, the consular Pinot wine that's sprung from Marlborough's Seresin Estate. Now all grown up with its own identity and personality, youthful, urbane and well travelled, charming and seriously stylish. Momo loves good food and great conversation, above all, Momo is about enjoyment, the sublime pleasure of good wine.
Momo is a proudly biodynamic certified organic Pinot Noir, the Seresin team emply a range of different preparations to help balance the environment and naturally enrich the soils. Preparations are used in combination to encourage the availability of soil minerals to plants. 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. Grapes are hand picked and hand sorted, followed by destemming and a term of cold soak maceration. Following a wild indigenous yeast vinification in traditional open top fermenters, components are transferred to French oak barriques for up to a year's maturation.
Garnet red colour. Aromas of black cherry, mocha, new leather and hints of spice. The palate is concentrated with succulent dark fruits layered over smoky oak and fine mouth coating tannins. Excellent cellaring potential, but why wait, enjoy Momo today with all meats, mushroom dishes or rich fish steaks like salmon and tuna.
