Pinot Noir – 2018

Region: New Zealand


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 organically grown grapes from a small number of growers and uses minimal winemaking intervention to present wines with honest varietal character and quality. All wines are Vegan friendly as well.


Inexpensive pinot noir is often a dicey proposition. Too often the money-saving compromises mean that this difficult-to-grow grape was planted in the wrong place, or that the production process cut multiple corners. But this wine, made from organic grapes grown in the Marlborough region of New Zealand, is true to the spirit of pinot noir, resulting in a fresh, graceful, refreshing wine redolent of flowers and red fruit. Drink lightly chilled. – Eric Asimov, “20 Under $20: Wines That Feed the Soul”
