Natalie's Score: 91/100

This spritely organic wine makes my mouth water just smelling it! Lovely white peach and melon with mouth-watering acidity for food. Very refreshing as an aperitif or companion to many dishes from seafood to salads. Classic aromas and flavours here for a cool climate region. Some toasted almond on the finish. Great wine for potluck gatherings and barbecues -- think grilled veggies and Portobello mushrooms. Yum! Momo is the second label of New Zealand's Seresin Estate, and the quality shows in the glass of this zesty, organic Pinot Gris. A fresh finish with terrific food versatility.

Pinot Gris food pairings: seafood, light pastas, grilled chicken and vegetables, cured meats, green salads.

Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely pale lemon in the glass. There are hints of peach and white flowers on the nose but there is an herbaceousness that over-rides the more delicate notes. The green notes continue to the palate becoming reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. While it is refreshing with a nice mouthfeel, minerality and a good length the stone fruits and florals are overtaken by the mineral and wet stone aspects. The medium weight and acidity would pair with chicken, seafood or creamy pasta. Tasted June 2018
Momo 2017 is a bright and vibrant Pinot Gris from the Seresin Estate, Marlborough, South Island. The Pinot Gris wine grapes for this wine are organically grown. On the nose, aromas of ripe pear, peaches and honeydew melon will just make your mouth water. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
