Staff Choice: A Family Favourite Pinot Noir

By

After reading our head of Information Systems David Marsh’s excellent piece on Italy’s Barolo & Barbaresco regions in Travels In Wine, I was sure his Staff Choice would be a high-born Italian. Not so!

Instead he surprised me with a delicious organic New Zealand pinot noir that’s friendly on the wallet and, apparently, a dab hand with moussaka (see below!)…

Momo Pinot Noir 2014

Momo Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

This pinot noir is a firm family favourite, having been purchased a number of times over the years. We find New Zealand pinot noir a versatile food wine, able to be matched with a variety of meat and vegetable dishes, or perhaps a rich salmon dish. Our most recent bottle was served with moussaka (reheated from earlier in the week when it is even nicer than the first time – the moussaka was reheated, not the Momo).

Momo is made by Seresin and is a very attractive pale red, typical of pinot noir and a lovely nose of red currants and raspberries, a fresh but not sweet summer pudding. The taste is between a Burgundy and some new world pinots, elegant but certainly not lean. This is a mouthwatering wine that leaves one wanting another glass. Organically produced, with a tendency, at least in our house, to evaporate in the glass!
