About the Wine
This cracking white wine created by Stonier is produced 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 Chardonnay is a delicious wine, made from Shiraz/Syrah grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites. Just perfect with chicken, pork, pastry with rich buttery and creamy sauces.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.

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
