Stoney Rise Pinot Noir 2017

Tamar Valley, Tasmania   |    750ml   |    12.5%
Stoney Rise is owned and operated by Joe and Lou Holyman who are building a reputation for making some of the Apple Isle's finest Pinots. Stoney Rise was established in 2000 with an eye to produce wines that are food friendly and complex without too much oak or overripe fruit characters. This 2017 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir is another superb example of Tasmanian Pinot Noir that offers excellent value for money drinking at this price.

"Over the years, a style that’s become more ‘Modern Lean Australian’ over powerful fruit. Spice, coffee grounds, cherry and raspberry, stoney things. Light bodied, some sourness and tang to the flavour profile, though a fair volume of red fruit is there too, in with some earthy character. Tannin is light and grainy, and the finish is fresh and ‘mineral’. A more bony style, but good fresh drinking. Rated: 92 Points Tasted: Sep18 Alcohol: 12% Price: $32 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2026" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

"There are some dark cherry and raspberry fruits on the nose. The palate starts out with fresh fruits and a hint of earthiness, and then the depth and structure of the old vine fruit kicks in giving the wine a long and savoury finish. While the initial juicy freshness makes this wine immediately enjoyable, the structure will make it a wine that you can happily put down for 5+ years." - Stoney Rise.

The 2017 season came after one of the wettest winters on record in Tasmania, which gave the vines a great launch pad. Spring was drier than normal, then in early Summer came a little rain and wind which affected some flowering. The rest of Summer was warm and dry - resulting in vintage for us starting in the middle of March.
