The Tatou vineyard is surrounded with olive trees and planted in Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The 15 hectare property is located slightly west of the Noa vineyard in the Wairau Valley. The fruit from Tatou’s alluvial shingle soils produces very concentrated aromatic wines with structured tannins.
This is the largest of the three vineyards, and is located in the foothills of the Omaka Valley to the south of the Wairau Valley. The clay rich soils of the 51 hectare vineyard are ideal for growing Pinot Noir. The land is also planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Viognier. Sheep and cattle herds are pastured here as well, making good use of the lush grass available in the areas unsuitable for growing vines.
Seresin wines are sourced from three vineyard sites, all of which are certified as Organic (Biogro) and Biodynamic (Demeter). The three vineyards have their own unique characters and produce fruit that adds to the complexity and interest.
The original vineyard is located in the central pocket of the Wairau Valley. Its 45 hectares are made up of alluvial, free-draining Waimakariri soils. The land is planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and Riesling. Olive groves, orchards, and vegetable gardens are an important part of the vineyard and add to the diversity of the Estate. The Noa vineyard is also home to the winery buildings, barrel hall and cellar door.
Seresin Estate lies in the sun-soaked heart of Marlborough at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, with vineyards spread across the warm stony Wairau Valley floor and up into the gentle clay slopes of the Omaka Valley to the South. The specially chosen sites are planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir.
Organic agriculture has been a fundamental principle of Seresin Estate since its foundation in 1992. After practising organics for a number of years, it was a natural progression to move towards biodynamics, and the entire farm has been certified biodynamic since 2006. Seresin Estate was one of the first organic producers in New Zealand and remains the largest organic and biodynamic wine estate in the country. This pioneering spirit is at the heart of Seresin, not resting on our laurels, but always looking to improve.
MOMO means ''offspring'' in Maori, and all Seresin's MOMO wines are fully organic. Just over 50% of the blend is fruit harvested from Seresin's three biodynamic vineyards which are certified by Demeter: Raupo Creek, Tatou and Noa. The other part is made up of fruit from three growers, with whom Seresin work closely to manage their vineyards in the Wairau and Waihopai valleys.
From its roots as part of the Seresin family, MOMO has developed its own identity, with wines which are true to variety and reflect the essence of their fruit characters.
This wine displays a complex nose with aromas of tropical fruit, herbaceous notes and a hint of cassis. The natural fermentation adds a rich and textural quality to the palate, with subtle notes of lemon zest and
