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
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.
