Stonier Pinot Noir

The 2010 growing season on the Mornington Peninsula was mild to warm with yields close to ideal levels. Regular seasonal rainfall provided just enough moisture to ensure the vines were happy throughout the season.  Temperatures were slightly above average during ripening, without any heat spikes, ensuring the retention  consistent flavour development.

The grapes for the Stonier Pinot Noir were selected from several long term growers for Stonier, with an epicentre around Merricks, Merricks North and Balnarring. The gently de-stemmed fruit was fermented in a combination of small open fermenters and larger Potter fermenters.

Approximately 3% of the blend was fermented as whole bunches. Pressed and transferred to a mix of fine grain French oak (approximately 10% new) for malo lactic fermentation, the wine was matured for 10 months prior to racking and bottling.

Tasting Notes

Colour - Light bright ruby red
Aroma - Pretty red fruits abound, with plum, cherries and raspberries, together with some lifted floral aromas.
Palate - The palate shows an immediate approachability with its soft centre developing an array of sweet red fruits with time in the bottle, all encapsulated by a savoury tannin structure. Despite the light colour, there is a myriad of intense fruit flavours that build in the glass.
