Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A classic NZ PN. By this I mean lots of juicy cherry goodness (almost Beaujolais-like) plus a hint of leather so we don't forget it's PN. Great buy.
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Slightly riper and fruitier than most Burgundian and cool climate Pinot Noirs, but maintains elements of cool climate/old world character. Plenty of cherry, more red cherry than sour cherry. More beet and earth than oak and spice. More body than most (13.5% ABV), and a little less acid than average. A charming expression placed between the styles of Burgundy and California. Gourmet homemade pizza, grilled small game birds, or lentil curry would make fantastic pairings.
Momo 2016 is a juicy, smooth, medium-bodied New Zealand Pinot Noir from Marlborough, South Island. Lovely balance of savoury herbs, ripe red cherry, sweet spice and bright acidity on the palate. The vineyard is bio-grow certified and Momo is made using organic and biodynamic winemaking practices. Momo translates to "Offspring" in the native Maori language. - 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.
