Stonier Mornington Peninsula 'KBS Vineyard' Pinot Noir 2013

Special Price $40.00 Regular Price $75.00
3.36 acres of old vine Pinot cropping at just over a tonne an acre make for a very limited production run. Fortunately, Stonier elected not to blend all of this exquisite parcel away. The KBS is a powerful, fine boned pinot offering deep red fruits, plum, bright acidity, woodsmoke and a wonderful texture. The fruit is intense enough to stand up to 43% new French oak, which only adds to the wine’s inherent power. Complex, fleshy, taut and generous, this is a superb wine.

Stonier Wines have been around for nearly 40 years and, as such, are pioneers of the Mornington Peninsula wine industry. Chardy was planted in 1978, Pinot following in 1982. The age of these vines has been critical to the development of their Reserve wines as world class examples of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir respectively. The fruit is entirely estate grown and they only use French oak.

As you'd expect from a peninsula, Mornington is cool and maritime, with vines getting a good blasting of cold in winter. Folks who know about climate and wine would know that would rule out your classic big, bold Aussie reds.

Pinot noir (French pronunciation: [pinoˈnwaʁ]) is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name may also refer to wines created predominantly from Pinot noir grapes.

Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France.

Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine.
