Stonier Pinot Noir Mornington Peninsula 2006
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. The reserve Pinot Noir is deep, bright red. If offers a very perfumed nose of morello cherries, redcurrants and dark chocolate, with some floral, spicy complexity and subtle French oak. The palate is very even but substantial weight of fruit and tannin, with well balanced acidity lending freshness to the powerful fruit character.
