Food Pairings for Stonier Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula Reserve
Stonier is located on the Mornington Peninsula across Port Philip Bay from Melbourne and is home to one of the most stunning views in Australian wine: whale watching with a glass of Pinot in your hand whilst sitting on the veranda is the perfect way to unwind after a hard day in the vineyards. It's easy to see why winemaker Geraldine McFaul has never felt the need to leave since her arrival in 1995. Taking her inspiration from Burgundy, Geraldine handcrafts sublime Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a cool climate that is perfect for these varietals with the Reserve level wines having a justifiable claim to be among Australia's best examples. Pale gold with bright green tinges, the nose of this beautiful reserve wines offers up lemon and grapefruit aromas, with hints of peach andhazelnut are supported by well integrated French oak. It has a fine and minerally palate, with great intensity of lemon fruit and cream in the mid to back palate. Excellent length and balance, finishes with clean acidity.
