Stonier Pinot Noir 2017
Mornington Peninsula, Australia
Aroma of cherry and red fruits, with roses, herbal spice and a hint of ironstone. Nice classic Pinot palate, with savoury and tight tannins at this youthful stage offering a firm direction. Lots of cherry and spice flavours, opening up to reveal a nice juiciness and increasing flavour intensity.
STONIER – Mornington Penninsula
Stonier Wines was established at Merricks, on the cool southern edge of Victoria’s picturesque Mornington Peninsula, in 1978. One of the first wineries in the region, Stonier first planted Chardonnay vines in 1978, followed by Pinot Noir in 1982. By 1988 the vineyard had expanded to 6 hectares, with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay the core focus for the winery. These two varieties are what Stonier, and the Mornington Peninsula, has built its reputation on.
