Stonier is situated in Victoria’s picturesque Mornington Peninsula. The first Chardonnay was planted in 1978 and Pinot Noir in 1982. Over more than 25 years later, Stonier has developed a reputation as a producer of exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. 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.
Here's a stalwart of well priced Australian Pinot Noir. Light, spicy, strawberry, some smoke and a touch of creamy oak. Light to medium-bodied, red fruits, spicy and juicy, a little rasp of tannin, crisp and sappy spicy finish of fair length. Tasty. Strong release. Alcohol: 13%; Price: $28; Screwcap; 2018 - 2022; Rated: 92 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
A beautifully bright, fragrant pinot with aromatic strawberry notes. The palate is engaging and jam-packed with flavour despite its light body. The tannins are fine, tight and integrated. A classy, youthful wine which I suspect will grow and expand with a little time in bottle. Drink: Now to 2021; Price: $28.00; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 92 Points; Toni Paterson; The Real Review
Pristine and perfumed; fresh rose petals, red cherries, raspberries and strawberries, gentle oak and fresh acids; charming length and texture. Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2022 to 2025+; Rating: 91 Points; Jeremy Oliver; Australian Wine Annual
