Stonier: ‘Ultra-charming’ small-batch wines to seek out

Sarah Ahmed looks at the latest-release Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Mornington Penisnula pioneer, Stonier.

Mornington Peninsula pioneer Stonier provided my introduction to the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-focussed Victoria region and, 15 years on, Victoria's cool, maritime wines have become strikingly finer, with greater nuance.

With barely-there oak and lower alcohol levels, Stonier’s first UK pre-release single-vineyard tasting rang the changes loud and clear.
