Stonier Chardonnay 2015
Mornington
The name Stonier is widely recognised as Mornington's most splendid Chardonnay, sourced from a select coterie of hand tended vineyards amongst the rolling hills of the peninsula. A unique topography and cool maritime climes make a distinctive expression of Chardonnay. A richly barrel fermented wine, the highly talented team arbor through a diligent lees stirring and fermentation process, to achieve a complex array of exotic fresh citrus fruit flavours supported by natural acid with a delicate mineral character, in a fruit driven, early drinking style.

At the heart of Stonier lies a meticulous approach to viticulture and winemaking. Stonier sources Chardonnay from over 150 acres across five sub regions, Merricks North and Balnarring, Tuerong, Red Hill and from the estate vineyards at Merricks which span over fifty acres. Early morning processing of the hand harvested Chardonnay blocks is essential, air conditioning in the barrel room means that temperatures are kept under control. Fermented predominately in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, treated to an occasional lees stirring and malolactic. To maintain the lovely fresh Stonier style, a component is tank vinified without malolactic to preserve natural acid crispness.
 
Pale gold colour with green tinge. Lifted lemon blossom bouquet, exotic fruits and honey with a hint of spicy oak. Lovely fresh lemon sorbet flavours on a powerfully condensed middle palate opening up to a lingering creamy citrus finish. A superb drink just on its own, Stonier is a natural conversation starter when enjoyed as aperitif yet offers the structure and solid fruit character to accompany the finest faire.
Stonier KBS Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
Mornington
Available in cartons of six
A single parcel Pinot Noir from the KBS Vineyard, offering typicity and profound integrity each year. Named after founder Kenneth Brian Stonier, the KBS property was planted in 1988 on deep rich red loams adjacent to the winery. Pinot Noir from this elite site is nothing short of outstanding, it translates into the finest examples of Mornington, consistently well balanced with ripe fruit flavours yet high natural acidity. The smallest quarter of the choicest fruit is separately bottled as KBS Pinot Noir, the balance forming a key component in Stonier's Reserve.

The priority here is to retain the individual site characteristics throughout the winemaking By constructing a single vineyard KBS Pinot Noir, Stonier can isolate for the enthusiast, the nuances of the local terrains which make Stonier so special. KBS vineyard is lyre trellised which opens up the canopy, this combined with its easterly aspect ensures that the vines capture maximum sunlight. Hand picked grapes are destemmed and vinified in small open fermenters, hand plunged through fifteen days maceration before transfer to new and prior use French oak barriques for malolactic. KBS is allowed to mature with minimal intervention for an extended term before being racked and bottled the following winter.
 
Medium ruby colour. Fragrant aromas of dark plum, raspberry and blackberry with some dried herbal notes and fresh liquorice. An abundance of generously flavoured dark red fruits to the palate with a hint of raspberry liquorice and some uplifting spice on a firm but delicate tannin structure. KBS displays the definition, richness and integration of a great vineyard.
Stonier Mornington Pinot Noir 2016
Mornington
It's a fact that Stonier introduced Australian Pinot to the world and Australian palates to Pinot Noir. Stonier know their work, assembling some of the most successful of Mornington's regionally distinctive wines. A splendid, forward drinking, fruit filled Pinot Noir with a touch of savouryness that's graced the table alongside many a roasted duck across the length and breadth of the nation. Its bright aroma of juicy red berries and characteristic ruby purple appearance is relied upon to deliver pure Pinot pleasure to paladins everywhere, year in and year out.

Grapes are selected from growers who have been supplying Stonier for years, a select group of hand tended vineyards located amongst rolling hills, with an epicentre around Balnarring, Merricks and Merricks North. Modest yields from some of the younger vineyards which contribute fruit, mean that the pure, ripe flavours are well balanced by fine, plentiful tannins. The gently de-stemmed fruit is vinified in a combination of small open vessels and larger potter fermenters. A component is treated to fermentation as whole bunches. The wine is pressed and transferred to a combination of new and prior use French oak barrels for completion of malolactic, followed by ten months maturation, racking and bottling.
 
Bright ruby red. Intense cherry aroma, earthyness and dark chocolate hints, characters of beetroot and red liquorice, subtle French oak adding complexity. The palate shows vibrant cherry and plum fruit flavours with some spiced, earthy complexity. The structure is weighty with fine but grippy tannins providing balance to the intense fruit. A lovely, drying, fruity, raspberry finish.
Stonier Reserve Chardonnay 2013
Mornington
Available in cartons of six
A Burgundy interpretation of Mornington, the ultimate expression of terroir. Three particular blocks have consistently provided Stonier with low yields of quality fruit, mature hand tended vineyards aged well over twenty years. The vines are predominantly planted to cooler sites around Merricks and Merricks North, harvested slightly later in the season than some of the younger Stonier sites. A rich and engaging style to match with seared Moreton Bay Bugs, deglazed with amandes effilées and sauterne.

The climate and proximity to the sea of sites contributing fruit affects each differently, the distinctive flavours contribute complexity. An unwavering focus on style and structure ensures that the wine reflects the diverse flavours and textures from across the sites without any single aroma or flavour dominating the final wine. The aim is for typicity from vintage to vintage, rather than a blended complexity. The majority of fruit is whole bunch pressed, completely barrel fermented and treated to full malolactic in high quality French oak barriques, a third of which are new. Stonier is treated to a course of monthly lees stirring for up to a year, followed by racking and filtration to bottle.
 
Pale gold with bright green hues. Lemon and grapefruit aromas, hints of peach and hazelnut are supported by notes of well integrated French oak. Fine fruit and mineral palate, with great intensity of lemon citrus and cream in the mid to back palate. Excellent length and balance, Stonier finishes long and lasting with clean acidity.
Stonier Reserve Pinot Noir 2011
Mornington
It was the Stonier team who put Mornington on the map for world class Pinot Noir. Several precious Reserve blocks, growing vines up to thirty years of age, are planted to predominantly cooler sites around Merricks and Merricks North. The grapes here are picked slightly later in the season, as the slow ripening blocks achieve limited harvests of the most intensely flavoured fruit. Delicately framed by understated oak, a powerfully fruit driven Pinot Noir offering layers of complexity, true elegance and exquisite richness of flavour.

Low yields of small bunches with low berry numbers translate into the richest Pinot Noir. Stonier's Reserve is noteworthy for it's purity of fruit, reflecting the virtue of older vines. Stonier take a holistic approach to viticulture, minimal inputs and irrigation by rainfall, encouraging the vine's natural defence for disease control, hand pruning and picking. The choicest estate grown parcels are vinified in small, open fermenters, most components are treated to an extended skin maceration, a small portion being whole bunch fermented. Upon completion, the wine is pressed into a combination of new and prior use French oak barrels for completion of malolactic and extended maturation with a minimal interference before bottling.
 
Deep, bright red. Very perfumed bouquet of morello cherry, redcurrants and dark chocolate, floral, spiced complexity and subtle French oak. Substantial weight of fruit and tannin on the palate, well balanced acidity lending freshness to the powerful fruit. A firm but fine tannic grip before a lingering finish laden with fruit. A silky, textural Pinot which resonates of black cherries, berries and spiced plum.
Stonier Sparkling Brut
Mornington
Available in cartons of six
One reason Brian Stonier founded his winery and planted vineyards was his love of Champagne. He originally established his now famous Pinot Noir vines to craft a luxury sparkling wine. Stonier Sparkling articulates the cool and maritime growing conditions of the Stonier vineyards at Mornington. Exhibiting heady aromatics, heightened flavour profiles of nuts and baked yeasts, with a fine effervescence, Cuvee Stonier expresses fine masculine fruit, in particular from the major component of Pinot Noir grown to cooler sites.

Fruit is harvested early in the vintage to retain the natural acidity essential for quality sparkling wines. A higher proportion of Pinot Noir is picked and included into the Cuvee to maintain the richness of the wine, whilst a much smaller component of Chardonnay brings elegance and finesse to the final blend. Grapes are all hand picked into small containers to avoid any unwanted maceration of skins, chilled overnight and treated to a gentle press. Batches are vinified without delay to retain fresh fruit characters. After eighteen months repose on lees within own bottle, the balance of autolysis characters have melded perfectly with the fruit, Stonier is disgorged and doseaged in true methode traditionelle.
 
Pale straw gold, steady bead, persistent and fine. Crême brulee and grilled almond notes, fresh cooked biscotti derived from the yeast autolysis, aromas of peach and of strawberries. A mouthfilling mousse, the palate shows the rich Pinot fruit characters of cream and strawberry, the enticing flavours of the bouquet are reflected onto the palate, exemplary mouthfeel and flavour profiles delivered with finesse and exceptional styling.
In 1978, Brian Stonier and his wife Noel established the Stonier vineyard in the coastal town of Merricks, one hour southeast of Melbourne, ten minutes from the challenging surf beaches of Bass Straight

Decades later, the name Stonier is widely recognised 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 flavour and texture, interweaving these differences to form elegant wines of seamless complexity has earned Stonier a place amongst the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producers in Australia. 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.

Stonier

Due to the cool climate of the Mornington Peninsula, at each of these sub-regions North and North-East facing sites are favoured as they are protected from the prevailing sea winds whilst retaining maximum exposure to the sun. Stonier's focus on quality in the vineyards is most evident in Merricks where vineyard design and low vine density are prime factors in limiting crop levels to under 3 tonnes to the acre.

Grapes from each of the numerous 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 flavours and texture of fruit sourced from across these five sub-regions without any one aroma or flavour dominating the final wine.

Stonier wines are acclaimed internationally amongst the finest styles of cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Australia. Stonier's pedigree includes such highlights as Trophies for the 1993 Reserve Pinot Noir and 1995 Reserve Chardonnay, and Decanter's Best New World Red Wine for the 1997 Reserve Pinot Noir.

Three particular vineyards have consistently provided low yield reserve quality fruit. They are located on the Stonier estate in Merricks and further north; warmer sites that face inland- protected from sea winds to maximise ripening potential. The climate and proximity to the sea affects each site differently and the distinctive flavours of the individual vineyards bring complexity to the Reserve blend. The Burgundian benchmark of individual vineyards and expression of site are the most interesting facet of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir production and therefore single vineyard wine has been a logical progression for Stonier. The aim is for typicity from vintage to vintage, rather than the blended complexity of the Reserve.
