Expert Reviews

"Once upon a time, the oak regime at Stonier overpowered its flagships and left me hankering for its entry wines. It’s a brand new day at this hallowed Mornington estates, and Mike Symons has brought the barrels into line, letting pure red cherries, berries, plums and silky, textural tannins sing." Rating 94 - Tyson Stelzer, www.tysonstelzer.com (23/SEP/2011)

Medium red-purple; the alcohol belies the generosity and ripe berry flavours of the wine; that said, it is strongly varietal, with a lovely juicy plum line running through gently savoury/foresty notes on the sides.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep and intense ruby red.

Aroma

Seductive dark fruits, with some spicy fruit and oak lift.

Palate

Some brooding blackcurrant and dark plum open up to reveal a highly structured palate, with mouth coating tannins and earthy raspberry complexity. A long and intense flavour packed palate points towards a long life ahead of this very limited release.
