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 we have Stonier’s Reserve Pinot Noir in fine form. It’s firm, powerful and persistent. It’s a complete sentence; a statement. It’s loaded with twiggy spice notes, almost into clove territory, but the wine’s cherry-plum fruit has real power to it, and while there’s a boost of oak it feels appropriate. It’s a wine that wants to be taken seriously and deserves to be. Tasted: Sept 20; Alcohol: 13.6%; Price: $60; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2021-2028+; Rated: 95 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

A best barrel selection from all vineyards, focusing on structural strength and fruit depth (rather than fruit purity). This release included the Windmill, KBS, Merrons and Gainsborough Vineyards plus 40% whole bunch ex W-WB. This has more depth and structure to its red and dark berry fruits backed by balanced and integrated tannins, the oak absorbed. Drink to: 2034; Price: $60.00; Date Tasted: Mar 2020; Alcohol: 13.6%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
