Winemaker 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.

Stonier
In 1978, Brian Stonier and his wife Noel established the Stonier vineyard in the coastal town of Merricks, one hour southeast of Melbourne and ten minutes from the challenging surf beaches of Bass Straight. Over 28 years later, the name Stonier is widely recognized as a producer of exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

At the heart of Stonier lies a meticulous approach to viticulture and winemaking. A desire to reflect the imprint of each site, through subtle variations in flavor and texture, has earned Stonier a place amongst the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers in Australia. Early vintages were made off-site until the winery in Merricks, designed by Daryl Jackson, was completed in 1991.

Today, Stonier sources Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from over 150 acres across 5 selected sub-regions: Merricks North, Balnarring, Tuerong, Red Hill and at the estate vineyards in Merricks which span over 50 acres. Grapes from each of the vineyards are vinified separately to allow ultimate flexibility when finally blending the wine to form the two distinct styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Stonier Label and Stonier Reserve wines. An unswerving focus on style and structure ensures that the wines reflect the diverse flavors and texture of fruit sourced from across these five sub-regions without any one aroma or flavor dominating the final wine.
