Stonier S Pinot Noir Mornington Penninsula 6 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

It is said that Stonier's the estate that brought Australian Pinot to the world, and Australian palates to Pinot. A fine and exquisite, forward drinking, fruit driven wine that's graced the table alongside many a roasted duck across the breadth of Australia for many years. The Stoniers really know their vines and employ some of the nation's top young guns to craft one of Mornington's stellar performers. Modest yields mean that the pure, ripe flavours are well balanced by plentiful, fine tannins. Intense cherry aroma, earthy, dark chocolate hints, characters of beetroot and red liquorice, nicely subtle French oak adding complexity. It's relied upon to deliver consistently good Pinot Noir, year in and year out, the irony being that the quality within continues to improve with each passing vintage. "Deeper colour than usual for Stonier, the aromas and flavours likewise stronger and deeper, but without any hint of dead/shrivelled fruit; instead there are delicious cherry and plum flavours running through the long, supple palate. 96 James Halliday points!" -Wine Companion.com.au
