Stonier Pinot Noir

Gymnastics

Stonier, Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia 2009
It looks pretty, it looks effortless. But for PInot like this to be really rewarding requires years of intensive effort and training to achieve the necessary flexibility and elegance. In a finely balanced display, Stonier’s Pinot, with its sweet loganberry aromas and juicy fresh strawberry flavours, shows a gravity-defying youthful exuberance, not to mention a sweet middle and innocent charm. All the elements, in fact, that go into the incredible feat of getting the Pinot Noir balance just right. 16pts/20 (86/100)
