Stonier produces one of the most consistent Pinots from the Mornington Peninsula. Attractive plum and cherry flavours are enhanced by some gamey undertones and smoky oak influence. Perfect with duck.
Stonier Pinot Noir
The 2016 vintage on the Mornington Peninsula was a warm and generous vintage, but incredibly dry, with rainfall (only 225mm) almost half the season average, making it one of the driest seasons in the last 10 years.
The fruit for Stonier Pinot Noir is derived from a selection of long term vineyards scattered across the Mornington Peninsula, but with a focus towards the region’s cooler south near the small town of Merricks.
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.
Colour Light red.
Aroma Lifted with dark scented roses and black cherry.
Palate A strong core of dark to red fruits, with hints of savoury dark chocolate and fennel spice.The tannins are well and truly built around the fruit flavours and have a firm savoury aura about them, but they also have a nice degree of suppleness that makes this wine very appealing at this early stage. An increasingly expansive palate will no doubt reveal itself 6-9
months after bottling, as the wine really starts to show itself.
