2013 Momo (Seresin) Pinot Noir Marlborough
Ripe, plummy wine with cherry, raspberry, violet and a savoury, earthy character. Sweet fruit mesh with fine and slightly sappy tannins to give a drying finish. It's a seriously interesting and very honest Pinot Noir offering great value at this price.
*Expert's Choice* Restrained red fruit with subtle savoury and spicy nuances; firm bite of acidity balances soft tannins. Appealing tartness.

Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Pinot Noir gives a nose of fresh cranberries, red currants and mulberries with suggestions of anise, menthol and roses. Medium-bodied, it offers a good amount of red berry and earthy flavors supported by a medium level of grainy tannins and harmonious yet uplifting acidity. It finishes long if a little straightforward. (LPB)
Medium red. Mellow aromas of plum, cherry, red berries and spices, with complicating minty and earthy nuances. Juicy, savory and fresh, with the mint element perking up the red fruits on the middle palate. Not especially fleshy but delivers very good spicy energy. Finishes with dusty tannins and good grip. No easy sweetness here but shows subtle length. (ST)
There's a mouthwatering tang to the pomegranate and cranberry flavors in this red, with fresh herb, cedar and spice accents, and firm tannins. (MW, Web-2016)
Seresin's "MOMO" has long been one of the best value Pinot Noirs at K&L. The fact that it is now all estate, sourced from three certified organic vineyards, handpicked, hand sorted, and fermented with wild yeasts, is just miraculous at this price point. Not only does this wine capture the delicacy of Pinot fruit but it also shows off some of the varietals more complex earthy, savory tones normally reserved for much more expensive incarnations. This is seriously good Pinot at a very economical price point. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L NZ Wine Buyer)
