2016 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir


Our 2016 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir is a 50/50 blend of fruit we grow and fruit we purchase from our small growers around the Tamar Valley.  The 50% from our vineyard comprises of just over half of the fruit from vines planted in 2004 and the remainder from our older vines planted in 1986 - which is the component of the blend that gives this wine it's structure and backbone.

The 2016 Stoney Rise Pinot Noir is a slightly more restrained style than the 2015.  There are some fresh strawberry and raspberry fruits on the nose.  The palate starts our with fresh fruits and a hit 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 the you can happily lay down for 5+ years.
