Stonier Pinot Noir is sourced from a select group of hand tended vineyards located amongst the rolling hills of the Mornington Peninsula. The Peninsula’s unique geography and cool maritime conditions contribute to a highly distinctive expression of Pinot Noir, typically showing flavours of vibrant cherry to savoury plum within a fine tannin structure.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brick red with a bright hue
Complex with indian spice and lifted perfume of strawberries and red berries.
A firm palate with fruit weight presence and generosity building in the glass. There is plenty of spice and red fruits, which reveal an even more complex array of flavours as the wine opens up - it should be exciting to see the development of this wine as it unravels its many layers over time. As always there is a firm presence of savoury tannins holding things nicely together.
