2013 Stonier KBS Vineyard Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir
How much will it set me back?
What do we think?
A developing, mature nose of warm red fruits with earth and spice and a savoury note of black tea. The riper nose gives way to a more savoury palate, layered and complex with mushroom, dried herbs, and meaty tones amongst the fleshy fruits.
What's the winemaker have to say?
From a vineyard planted in 1988 at Merricks on the Mornington Peninsula.
Not a wine of finesse but a wine of power. There fruit flavours here are stewy and black cherried, tending into plum. Coffeed oak plays a key role too. It’s firm and rich, even earthen, with ample tannin and length, but it’s not the most charming of releases. - 92 Points Campbell Mattinson
