Stonier Wines was established at Merricks, on the cool southern edge of Victoria’s picturesque Mornington Peninsula, in 1978. One of the first wineries in the region, Stonier first planted Chardonnay vines in 1978, followed by Pinot Noir in
1982. By 1988 the vineyard had expanded to 6 hectares, with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay the core focus for the winery. These two varieties are what Stonier, and the Mornington Peninsula, has built its reputation on.
Pale straw in colour, aroms feature preserved lemon and lemon zest, before a crisp grapefruit tang on the palate. Pairs wonderfully with steak béarnaise.
