Even as a young wine there is a nice textural aspect of integrated flavour and tannin, with a fruit spectrum that is more dark cherry and brooding raspberry, rather than bright red fruits. There is an appealing savoury tannin framework which will no doubt become more expansive together with the palate over the coming 12 months and beyond.
92 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Medium to light purple/red colour, with a very fragrant, floral aroma, with tinges of bunchy, spicy, Campari-like nuances. Balsamic herbs. Black cherries rather than red. Borderline opulent. Lovely character, and has plenty of detail despite its extreme youth. Outstanding value for money."
92 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front
"Aromatic pinot noir. A bit of the old ‘come hither’ about it. Cherries, strawberries and spicy-sweet oak. Both mid-weight and mid-length. Absolutely worth buying/drinking. A chalkiness to the tannin and feel. It’s a very good release."
The 2019 Stonier Pinot Noir is sourced from a select group of hand tendered vineyards located amongst the rolling hills of the Mornington Peninsula.
The hand-picked fruit was mostly de-stemmed into small open two and three tonne fermenters, with daily hand plunging and gentle pump overs during fermentation. Approximately 5% of the fruit was fermented in separate two tonne fermenters as whole bunches.
After 12-22 days on skins, the wine was pressed to a mix of fine grain French oak puncheons and barriques (15% new) for malo-lactic fermentation and maturation. A portion of the final blend was also retained in stainless steel tanks, to promote the vibrant fruit profile we cherish with Stonier Pinot Noir.
