About the Wine
This cracking red wine produced by Stonier is made in the Mornington Peninsula area of Victoria. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark so you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Accolade wines. Stonier Pinot Noir is an inspired wine, made from Vermentino grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. Elegant, savoury, berry-fruit flavours that are excellent with light game, wild mushrooms, rich chicken and pork dishes.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
One of the first wineries on the Mornington Peninsula and a Halliday 5 star winery, Stonier was established in 1978 by the Stonier family, pioneers of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in this coastal region. Crafting elegant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines from some of the Mornington Peninsula’s oldest vines and cradled between two bays in close proximity to Bass Strait, the cool maritime climate provides ideal conditions for these early ripening varieties.
Australia is at the start of an exciting wine journey. Having been a successful wine growing country with their classic punchy style, we are now seeing more experimentation and diversity, and it's for the better.Explore Australia
