The 2010 MOMO Pinot Noir is a certified organic wine made using fruit from three Marlborough vineyards with varying soil characteristics. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked, hand-sorted, de-stemmed and then cooled before 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.
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.
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.
