Winemaker's Notes

"Light red. Spicy redcurrant, strawberry and underbrush aromas convey delicacy and precision. Light and crisp, with vibrant red fruit flavors and brisk acidity. Finishes with tangy minerality and impressive length. This may come across as too light to many fans of New World pinot but I'm impressed by its delicacy and balance."
-International Wine Cellar

The 2005 Stonier Pinot Noir was fermented in a combination of small open fermenters and larger Potter fermenters, with a small percentage of stalks and very little berry crushing. It was pressed and transferred to French oak for malolactic fermentation, and allowed to mature for a further 11 months before bottling. The wine has great depth of fruit and will continue to develop complexity over the next few years.

This wine has intense fresh raspberry and cherry aromas, with subtle French oak adding complexity. The sweet berry flavors persist on the silky palte, with fine tannins giving length and intensity.
